Electronic Case Filing - Recommended Software and Hardware



Recommended Software and Hardware

PDF Writer
The CM/ECF system only accepts filings in PDF (Portable Document Format). While we do not require you use a particular program to create PDF documents, we have found that PDF documents created with Adobe Acrobat Writer or Distiller programs work well with the CM/ECF system.

Adobe Acrobat Reader
This program will allow users to view and print PDF documents created by others, but not create PDF documents. Click here for a free download of Adobe Acrobat Reader.

Version 1.5 of this browser has been certified for use with CM/ECF. Click here for a free download of Mozilla Fire Fox 1.5.

Netscape Navigator 7.1

Word Processor
Any word processing program may be used to create original documents, which must then be converted to PDF to be filed in the CM/ECF system. Two popular word processing programs are Microsoft's Word and Corel's WordPerfect.

Scanner
Documents that exist only in paper form can be converted to PDF with use of a scanner. Scanners are available with a wide range of capabilities and price ranges. Attorneys should consider the volume of scanning they anticipate before purchasing this equipment. The court cannot recommend specific brands of scanners.
