The United States District Court for the District of Puerto Rico upgraded its Case Management/Electronic Case Filing System (CM/ECF) to the Next Generation of CM/ECF (NextGen). This upgrade provides users with several new benefits.  One of these benefits is Central Sign-On, a login process which allows e-filing attorneys to use one PACER login and password to access any NextGen court (district, appellate and bankruptcy) in which they practice.  To login to NextGen CM/ECF, attorneys must obtain their own individual PACER account and upgrade it..
