CM/ECF System Upgrade - System Unavailable the Weekend of March 30, 2013

Monday, March 18, 2013

To the Bankruptcy Community: 

Over the weekend of March 30th through April 1st, 2013 the Northern District of Iowa's Bankruptcy Court will be upgrading its Case Management/Electronic Case Filing (CM/ECF) System to the latest system release (Version 5.1).  To ensure a smooth transition to this new version, the court will be taking its CM/ECF system off-line for the entriety of the weekend.  Therefore the system will not be available for electronic filing activities from Saturday morning, March 30, 2013 at 6:00 a.m. through Monday morning, April 1, 2013 at 8:00 a.m.  On Monday morning, April 1st at 8:00 a.m. the system will be brought back on line and you will be able to resume electronic filing activities at that time.

We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this period of CM/ECF system unavailablity may cause, and ask that if you be mindful of these date (to ensure that any matters subject to time restrictions are filed prior to the system going off line at 6:00 a.m. on Saturday, March 30th).


Thank you, in advance, for you attention in the matter!



Jean L. Hekel
Clerk of Court
