This message is being sent to you because you have more than one email address listed in the Additional Email Address field of CM/ECF. It has been brought to our attention that the Case Management Electronic Case Files (CM/ECF) system is not providing a free look from the Notice of Electronic Filing (NEF) to all persons listed in the Additional Email Address field. The CM/ECF system is only providing a free look to the first person that opens the document from the NEF. All other Additional Email Address recipients who click on the NEF will be asked for a PACER login and then charged the $.07 per page fee.

We have been advised by the Administrative Office that this will be fixed in a future version of CM/ECF. In the meantime, please review your PACER bills carefully. If you find that you have been charged for a notification that was accessed by a person listed as an Additional Email Address, please contact PACER at 1-800-676-6856 to have the charge removed from your bill. If you have questions regarding this matter, please contact the Clerk's Office in Omaha at 1-866-220-4381 or Lincoln at 1-866-220-4379.

Thank you,
United States District Court Clerk's Office
