CM/ECF Filer or PACER Login
This is a Restricted Web Site for Official Court Business only. Unauthorized entry is prohibited and subject to prosecution under Title 18 of the U.S. Code. All activities and access attempts are logged.
The United States Bankruptcy Court would like to remind CM/ECF filers that the use of certain open source software such as RECAP is discouraged. RECAP (designed by a group from Princeton University) takes court documents that are opened in your PACER session and copies them to an internet repository where they can be accessed by the public at large. This plug-in violates fee exempt PACER users terms of service and while this sort of plug-in does not violate the Bankruptcy Court's terms of service for nonexempt PACER/ECF users, future versions could capitalize on its open source roots and be modified to be malicious and possibly dangerous. Accordingly, CM/ECF filers are reminded to be diligent about their computer security practices and privacy rules/protections to ensure that documents are not inadvertently shared or compromised.
The court and the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts will continue to analyze the implications of RECAP or related-software and advise you of any ongoing or further concerns.
