Reminder: Public Notice Regarding Unavailability of CM/ECF

Wednesday, August 5, 2020

Beginning Friday, August 7 at 4:00 PM, the CM/ECF system for the United States Bankruptcy Court, Northern District of Georgia will be unavailable to all users due to an upgrade to CM/ECF Version 5.3.3. An announcement will be posted to the Court’s website when the system is available, which is expected to be Sunday, August 9 at 5:00 PM.
Some of the changes you will notice after the upgrade are:

  • The Application Name on file for the court at now appears as the page header.
  • The Country field no longer defaults to “United States”.
  • When the Country field is populated, the State and ZIP fields become required fields.

    Note: You may experience the following issues if the ZIP field is blank in your CM/ECF account. A blank space may get placed before the prepopulated ZIP field in the screen. If you do not delete the blank space, you will receive a validation error that states, "US ZIP/Postal Code must be 5 or 9 numbers." Deleting the blank space resolves the validation error for that field.

  • On the payment receipt screen, the option to receive an email from when a payment is made has been removed. You may obtain a confirmation by clicking on the "print a copy of your transaction receipt" on the page that is displayed at the end of the payment transaction.
