Federal Judiciary Open During Government Shutdown

Despite a partial shutdown of the federal government that began on Dec. 22, 2018, the Federal Judiciary remains open.  

The Case Management/Electronic Case Files (CM/ECF) system remains operational for electronic filing of documents.

Most proceedings and deadlines will occur as scheduled. In cases where an attorney from an Executive Branch agency is not working because of the shutdown, hearing and filing dates may be rescheduled.
