The email address to be used ONLY for this purpose is:


  • Only PDF documents should be emailed
  • This email address will only be operational during the shutdown and will not be monitored or available for use afterwards
  • Any documents not considered an emergency or sufficient for filing purposes will be returned to the attorney to file in CMECF once it is available on Monday

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
