Wednesday, November 18, 2015
The CM/ECF system for the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Massachusetts will be shutdown from Monday, November 30 at 4:00 PM EST until Tuesday December 1 at 8:00 AM EST to upgrade the system to accommodate the new required Official Bankruptcy Forms. These forms have been approved by Congress and are mandated by the Judicial Conference of the United States, effective Tuesday, December 1.
