New Standing Order effective December 1, 2009 affecting time calculations and new message from the Clerk of Court concerning these changes

Scanner Settings - Update
The Administrative Office of the Courts has been working with the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) regarding archival preservation and continued use of the scanned images in CM/ECF. As a result, we have been asked to update our scanning guidelines to recommend a higher resolution for scanned documents. The new recommendation is 300 dpi, or higher if necessary to achieve a legible document. You can view our updated scanning guidelines at   In order to accommodate larger files created by scanning at a higher resolution, the maximum file size that CM/ECF will allow has been increased to 4 MB.

RECAP Plug-in
A group from Princeton University has created a software application or "plug-in" for Firefox called RECAP, which was designed to enable the sharing of court documents on the Internet.  It appears that once a user loads RECAP, any document that he/she subsequently accesses via PACER is automatically sent to a public Internet site.  The full implications of using RECAP or related software are as yet unknown, including whether restricted documents could be inadvertently made available on the public Internet.  Accordingly, fee-exempt PACER users are reminded that information should only be used in accordance with the purpose for which the exemption was granted.  We will post additional information as it becomes available.
