Notice of Texas Western Bankruptcy Court's CM/ECF unavailability beginning Friday, March 20, 2020 at 8:00 pm (CDT) through Monday, March 23, 2020 at 7:00 am (CDT)

Monday, March 16, 2020

Dear Bankruptcy Practitioners,

Due to installation of a required CM/ECF software revision (CM/ECF version 5.3.2), the Texas Western Bankruptcy Court's CM/ECF system will be unavailable for filing, as well as access to PACER and VCIS for queries, between the hours of 8:00 pm CDT on Friday, March 20, 2020 and 7:00 am CDT on Monday, March 23, 2020.  Please plan accordingly.

The software revision consists of certain security and technical updates.  While these updates are important, electronic filers are not likely to see any noticeable differences between version 5.3.2 and the current CM/ECF version. 

The Court's website, located at, will be available during the maintenance window.

We apologize for any inconvenience.  If you experience a filing emergency, please contact Rob Lawson at 210-278-5720 or via e-mail at

Best regards,

United States Bankruptcy Court for the Western District of Texas
