On January 7, 2002, the U. S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Colorado began electronically filing court-generated documents utilizing the U. S. Court's nationally developed CM/ECF database management system. In August, 2002, the Court began training trustees to file documents electronically, and in February, 2003, classes for electronic filing began for other attorneys licensed to practice in the U. S. District Court for the District of Colorado, of which the U. S. Bankruptcy Court is a unit.
Because out-of-state attorneys may be familiar with CM/ECF and may have received authorization to file documents electronically based on their experience and practice in other jurisdictions where CM/ECF and electronic filing has been implemented, the U. S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Colorado would like to extend this benefit in the District of Colorado as well. Although completion of the District of Colorado's training class for electronic filing under CM/ECF will be waived for attorneys who already received equivalent training in another district, there are a few prerequisite requirements that must be met before the attorney is issued a login and password authorizing the electronic filing of documents in the District of Colorado.
To receive a login and password, out-of-state attorneys must comply with the following:
If you are interested in becoming an electronic filer in Colorado, please send an e-mail containing name, address, bar id and state of issuance to firstname.lastname@example.org so that we may send you an information packet which contains the required forms and homework assignment.
