Bankruptcy CM/ECF Next Generation

The judiciary has initiated a new IT project to develop a Next Generation of Bankruptcy CM/ECF. A project steering group has been appointed, and approved a plan to form three functional requirements groups to collect bankruptcy CM/ECF requirements. The three groups will examine all business processes from the perspective of the three main operational areas: Clerk’s Office, Chambers, and Additional Stakeholders. The Next Generation of Bankruptcy CM/ECF project is coordinating its efforts with district and appellate courts to ensure the creation of a compatible system that enhances the operations of the entire judiciary.

Mediation Procedure

There is a committee in place to amend the current mediation practices and procedures.  There will be revisions to the Local Rules regarding mediation and ADR practice guidelines.  A general meeting/CLE, outlining the changes, is projected for fall 2012.

Online Claims Module

The court is planning to implement an online claims module later this year.  Currently evaluation of the different modules that are available for CM/ECF is in process.  This program will allow users to file claims with the court electronically without a proof of claim form.  The module will collect all the data and create the form dynamically.  Supporting documentation can be uploaded if needed.  More information will be forthcoming later this year.
