The CM/ECF System is up virtually 24 hours a day. However, this system will be restarted each Friday morning between 6:30AM and 7:00AM. Please do not log into this system before 7:00AM on Fridays. The system will restart without looking to see if users are logged into this program, and you could possibly lose any work you were doing in CM/ECF at that time. Other maintenance that is required on this system will be announced on this page, as well as our local website at www.lawb.uscourts.gov. Please be sure to check this area for updated information daily. If you have any questions, please contact the Automation Department at 318-676-4267.
