The Eleventh Circuit has the Public Notice copied below on its website indicating that voluntary electronic filing will begin on January 1, 2012. According to the Pacer Service Center, "Beginning December 1 you may register for electronic filing with the 11th Circuit through the Appellate ECF application at http://www.pacer.gov/reg_ap.html."
The 11th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals will begin VOLUNTARY electronic filing on January 1, 2012.
Pursuant to Section 4.4 of the ECF Guide, the electronic filing of a Certificate of Interested Persons (CIP) in ECF does not relieve an Attorney Filer of the requirement to also complete and keep updated the web-based CIP on the Court's web site. To complete the web-based CIP, counsel must obtain from the clerk an Eleventh Circuit password that is independent of PACER and ECF passwords.
