NextGen CM/ECF


As of Monday, December 9, 2019, the United States District Court for the District of Maine is live on NextGen CM/ECF (NextGen), the latest version of the national case management and electronic filing system. 

NextGen simplifies electronic filing by combining an attorney’s CM/ECF and PACER accounts into a single Central Sign-On account.  This single account is used to file and view documents in all NextGen courts where an attorney has permission to file.

NextGen requires each attorney to have an individual PACER account. Shared firm accounts cannot be used for electronic filing.  If an individual PACER account is needed, one must be created.
