Welcome to the Case Management/Electronic Case Filing System (CM/ECF) for the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals.

To start filing, select "Filing" from the menu bar, then "File a Document."

Please review the documents in the sidebar for help with filing, procedural questions, and technical problems. Additional information is available at the 10th Circuit website.

Please note the following types of PDFs will be rejected: not compliant with PDF format standards; encrypted or password-protected; containing scripts which can launch external applications; containing internal attachments, audio, or video content; and/or created with Mac OS X either by using a fillable form in the Safari browser or MS Word and selecting the option, “Best for printing.” The simplest way to avoid/address most PDF-upload rejections is to “flatten” the PDF before uploading it. Please see the PDF-Related Functionality for Public Filers in NextGen CM/ECF for further information.

For technical assistance, please contact the PACER Service Center at 800-676-6856, or by email at pacer@psc.uscourts.gov.

For case-related procedural questions you may call the clerk's office at 303-844-3157 between the hours of 8:00 AM and 5:00 PM MST. To contact us by email, click here, or email us at clerk@ca10.uscourts.gov.

We remind counsel of the obligation to redact or otherwise exclude all personal identifiers from submitted pleadings. See Fed. R. App. P. 25(a)(5); 10th Cir. R. 25.5; Fed. R. Civ. P. 5.2. Those identifiers include social security numbers, financial account numbers, names of minor children and dates of birth. All filers should review pleadings in advance to confirm compliance with these privacy requirements.

Sharing your PACER and/or CM/ECF account credentials with a third-party service provider or designating that provider as a secondary recipient of a Notice of Docket Activity (NDA) will provide access to sealed case information and documents in violation of applicable rules, statutes and/or orders of this court. It is your responsibility to ensure that sealed documents to which you have access are not improperly disclosed. Fee exempt users may not share the documents they obtain from PACER and/or CM/ECF under the exemption, unless expressly authorized by the court.
