The United States District Court for the District of Nebraska has been selected as a test court for the Administrative Office's Case Management/Electronic Case Files (CM/ECF) project. CM/ECF is an Internet-based document filing system. The Court's strategic goal is to offer electronic case filing by January 2002. As we wait for the software to be released from the Administrative Office, we need your help in getting ready for this transition. If you are an attorney, paralegal, or legal assistant and want to be part of this exciting project, please contact Therese Bollerup at via our web page. Select US District Court and in the message add Attn: Therese Bollerup. We will need your assistance on many aspects of the project, but especially on drafting new local rules, training, and overall implementation. If you would like to learn more about electronic case filing in general, please check out our web site at www.ned.uscourts.gov or contact Denise Lucks via web page. Select US District Court and in the message add Attn: Denise Lucks. We look forward to working with you as we move from paper filing to electronic filing!

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Effective December 4, 2000, files or items belonging to the files of the court will not be checked out. A copy of the notice is posted in the clerk's office and available on request.
