BAP Electronic Case Filing ("ECF")


Notice Regarding BAP CM/ECF Numbering:
Effective January 30, 2012, the BAP upgraded to the latest release of CM/ECF and, at that time, turned on a CM/ECF feature that displays the number of a docket entry rather than an icon, as was done prior to this date. Please be aware that for entries docketed before January 30, 2012, there may appear to be skipped (non-sequential) docket entry numbers. The skipped numbers are non-public docket entries (e.g., notations on the termination of deadlines, addition or substitution of counsel, etc.). No documents are missing; all public docket entries are available on the electronic docket.

IMPORTANT: Appellate ECF will be unavailable from 10:00 PM until midnight each Saturday and Sunday for system maintenance.

Notice of Changes to Administrative Order Regarding Electronic Filing in BAP Cases:
The BAP modified its Administrative Order Regarding Electronic Filing in BAP Cases to require that all excerpts of record be filed electronically for all cases opened at the BAP beginning February 1, 2015. No paper copies will be necessary. In all other cases effective immediately any attorney or other electronic filer may file the excerpts electronically without submitting paper copies. See Rule 3 of the Administrative Order which is available below.

Please read our Administrative Order on ECF.
