Electronic Public Access
[last updated: 06/17/2014]

Public Access to Court Electronic Records (PACER) account is required to view documents and case files in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court's Electronic Case Files (ECF) system. Most new pleadings filed in cases pending as of May 17, 2001, and cases filed after that date can be viewed online. Documents in cases filed before December 1, 2003, and have been closed for one year, are restricted as part of the Judicial Conference's amended privacy policy. These documents can be viewed on the computers in the clerk's office lobby. Docket sheets and docket information remain available to the general public via PACER. To access current case information, including these images, point your browser to http://ecf.wawb.uscourts.gov. Enter your existing PACER account login and password to access ECF/PACER.

To register for PACER, contact the PACER Service Center at www.PACER.gov
