NextGen Information

The United States District Court for the Western District of Virginia went live on the Next Generation of CM/ECF (NextGen CM/ECF) on Tuesday, October 13, 2020.  This change affects ALL registered CM/ECF users.

NextGen CM/ECF includes "Central Sign-On", which allows registered users to access all NextGen courts to which they already have access (Appellate, Bankruptcy, and District Courts) using only one PACER login and password.

ALL registered CM/ECF users must have their own individual upgraded PACER account.  PACER account credentials are used for logging in to the NextGen CM/ECF system.  Shared PACER accounts cannot be used after October 13, 2020.
