Attorney Case Opening

 Attorney Case Opening

The Alabama Middle District now allows registered attorneys to e-file new case filings via CM/ECF Attorney Case Opening or by emailing the new case(s) to the Clerk's Office's New Case Email list.

This new option of filing does not replace conventionally filing new cases. This is a convenient optional addition for registered attorneys.

Counsel must have CM/ECF filing credentials to utilize this new feature. Detailed instructional material is available below for your reference. Please review all documentation of the Middle District of Alabama.
