NextGen Information

NOTICE:  The United States District Court for the Eastern District of Oklahoma upgraded to NextGen CM/ECF electronic filing on August 9, 2019. 

If you are admitted to the Eastern District of Oklahoma but NOT yet an e-filer, register for e-filer privileges in PACER.

Current E-filers MUST do the following in order to file electronically in this Court on or after August 9, 2019.

  1. Obtain your own individual PACER account or upgrade your existing individual PACER account.  Existing "Legacy" PACER accounts (accounts issued prior to August 11, 2014) must be upgraded.

  2. CJA Attorneys will only need one PACER account for filing and viewing in CM/ECF NextGen. If you have a separate exempt CJA account now, those exempt privileges will be added to your individual upgraded PACER account and your current exempt account will be canceled. Click here for instructions on requesting the CJA fee exemption. 

  3. Know your current CM/ECF Login and Password. Make sure attorneys know their CM/ECF login and password before the court upgrades to NextGen.  If the login information is stored in the browser, it will be lost and not recoverable.  If an attorney does not know his/her login or password, they should contact the court for a reset.

  4. Link your upgraded PACER account to your CM/ECF account.  NOTE Attorneys will NOT be able to file in NextGen until their ECF account is linked to their upgraded individual PACER account.  Click here to view the step by step instructions you will perform on or after August 10, 2019 to link a CM/ECF account to an upgraded PACER account.

Maintaining Your Account   All account information, other than secondary email addresses, is held in your PACER account.  It is the attorney's responsibility to keep account information up to date.  Click the Maintaining Your Account link for more information.
