Non-Business Hours Emergency Filing Procedure


During non-business hours, a person filing a motion, petition, request or application electronically that requires the immediate attention of a judicial officer, must file the document in CM/ECF. After filing the document in CM/ECF, parties seeking judicial review should call the United States Marshals Service Control Center at 313-234-5656.

Parties must provide Control Center personnel with the following information: Case number; name of the assigned judge; title of the document filed; document number and telephone number where they can be reached. Control Center personnel will contact the appropriate Court staff.

Only call the Control Center if you have filed a document that needs judicial review. If you are experiencing a CM/ECF login or other electronic filing problem and cannot file a document, click here.
