In addition to the court’s website and PACER, electronic opinions issued by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit are now available through the U.S. Government Publishing Office.  By joining this judiciary-wide initiative, the Federal Circuit is providing access and text-searchable functionality to all of its electronic opinions issued since the court went live with electronic filing in 2012.

Electronic filing will be unavailable due to planned maintenance from 8:00 pm to 9:00 pm EDT, Wednesday, August 1, 2018. We regret any inconvenience. 


Effective August 6, 2018, the Clerk’s Office will begin issuing a notice of non-compliance when a filing does not comply with either the Federal Rules of Appellate Procedure or the Federal Circuit Rules.  The full notice and information about the new procedure is available here.


The Court’s public website will be unavailable due to planned maintenance from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm EST, Thursday, July 5, 2018. We regret any inconvenience. Electronic filing will remain available at http://ecf.cafc.uscourts.gov.
