Ten Courts of Appeals Begin CM/ECF Implementation
"Ten of the 13 courts of appeals are participating in the Judiciary’s national rollout of the Case Management/Electronic Case Files (CM/ECF) system . . . [T]courts of appeals are still in the implementation stage, which began in 2005. During this time, functions have been added and kinks subtracted. Says Gary Bowden, chief of the Administrative Office’s Appellate Court and Circuit Administration Division, 'The 10 courts of appeals are making steady progress and we expect the first [appellate] courts to go live with the CM/ECF system by late 2006 or early 2007.'
