Scheduled ECF Maintenance

Friday, January 31, 2014

Beginning Friday, February 7 at 3:00PM our court will be transitioning over to  a new hardware system for our CM/ECF document filing system.  Please have all filings completed by 3:00PM on that date, as the system will be closed to outside users at that time.  The CM/ECF filing system will be available again on Sunday, February 9 at approximately noon.  

Between Friday and Sunday the system may be intermittently available due to installation testing.  DO NOT FILE ANY DOCUMENTS during that time. Our website home pages will clearly state that "CM/ECF is now available for use" when the system is ready.

Filing documents during this transition could result in lost information and filings for you.  Emergency filings that may occur FRIDAY between 3:00PM and 5:00PM can be handled by calling the appropriate court office for instructions: Shreveport at 866-721-2105, Alexandria at 866-356-5221 or Lafayette at 866-789-6015.

There will be no program changes during this installation. You should see no difference in how our CM/ECF handles your filings. You will not need to update any favorites you may have saved in your filing programs or browsers.  We apologize for any inconvenience this hardware update may cause.  Any additional information as it occurs can be found on the home page of our local website at www.lawb.uscourts.gov or the login screen of our CM/ECF filing system at https://ecf.lawb.uscourts.gov.  

Please contact Shreveport Automation if you have any questions or concerns at 866-721-2105.
