Electronic Case Filing Information

The United States District Court for the District of Maryland uses the CM/ECF case management system for accepting most court documents for filing, for entering orders from the court, and for otherwise managing the court’s case docket. Civil cases, except for those filed by self-represented parties, first started on CM/ECF on March 3, 2003; criminal cases started on CM/ECF on August 8, 2008.

These electronic case filing policies and procedures are issued pursuant to Local Rules 102 and 202 and apply to all cases subject to electronic filing.
