U.S. Bankruptcy Court – District of Nebraska is using NextGen CM/ECF.
Logging into CM/ECF has changed. Filers must upgrade existing PACER accounts
and use the upgraded accounts to log into NextGen CM/ECF.
Each filer in a court that has adopted NextGen CM/ECF must have an individual, upgraded PACER account. A firmwide or shared account may still be used to perform case research in PACER, but cannot be used to file electronically in NextGen CM/ECF. A filer who has been using a shared PACER account to file in the Nebraska Bankruptcy Court must create a new, upgraded PACER account.
ATTORNEY requesting access. Prior to approving a request to gain ECF access (either E-Filing or PHV) with United States Bankruptcy Court - District of Nebraska (NEBK), you must be admitted to practice with United States District Court - District of Nebraska (NEDC). In addition, a Pro Hac Vice (PHV), has to be requested through District Court first, before it can be approved in NEBK. (See NEGenR 1.7).
Note: An attorney who created a PACER account on or after August 11, 2014 already has an upgraded PACER account which is compatible with NextGen CM/ECF.
