Receiving Too Many Emails from the Court?

If you are receiving too many emails from the court, there are a couple of steps you can take to reduce the number of email notifications that are sent to your address.

OPTION 1 – Elect to receive one email per day via a “Daily Summary Report” of ECF activity as opposed to a separate email for each docket entry.

  1. Log on to CM/ECF
  2. Click ‘Utilities’ to go to the utilities menu
  3. Click ‘Maintain Your ECF Account’
  4. At the bottom of the screen, press the [Email information] button
  5. Click the circle beside “Send a Daily Summary Report”
  6. When finished, click the [Return to Account screen] button
  7. At the bottom of the screen, click the [Submit] button
  8. Click [Submit] a final time to update your account

 

OPTION 2 – File a “Notice of Disinterest” in cases for which you no longer wish to receive email notifications.

  1. Log on to CM/ECF
  2. Click ‘Bankruptcy’ to go to the bankruptcy menu
  3. Click ‘Notices’ to go to the notices menu
  4. Enter your Case number
  5. Select “Notice of Disinterest (Text Only Entry)”
  6. Click [Next]
  7. Follow the steps to complete filing of the Notice of Disinterest.

The Notice of Disinterest is a text-only entry. You do not have to prepare or attach a PDF document to this filing. After filing this notice, you will be removed from the email notification list for that particular case.

 

OPTION 3 – Check your account to see if there are cases listed in the "additional cases" box (cases in which you are not a party). If you no longer wish to receive email notifications in these additional cases, you can remove them from your account.

  1. Log on to CM/ECF
  2. Click ‘Utilities’ to go to the utilities menu
  3. Click ‘Maintain Your ECF Account’
  4. At the bottom of the screen, press the [Email information] button
  5. Look in the box called "Send notices in these additional cases"
  6. If you have added any additional cases, those case numbers will appear in the box
  7. Delete the case number of any cases for which you no longer wish to receive email notifications
