You must log in with your upgraded PACER account and submit a new e-file request for the court:
- Log in to Manage My Account.

- Click either Attorney Admissions/E-File Registration, Pro Hac Vice, MDL or Non-Attorney Admissions E-File Registration.
- Note for counsel in MDL cases: If you were listed as counsel on the docket of a case prior to it being transferred to the Northern District Ohio as part of an MDL, you need only submit an attorney registration request to gain access to the Northern District of Ohio’s electronic filing system. If you were not listed as counsel on the docket of a case prior to its transfer to the Northern District of Ohio, you made no prior appearance and are seeking to make your first appearance, then please email a Notice of Appearance to MDL@ohnd.uscourts.gov. Once we process your appearance, you will be notified via email that you can register for e-filing privileges.
Once registration is completed and approved by the Court, you will be notified via email that filing privileges have been granted.
You may contact the Electronic Filing Help Desk in the Clerk’s Office at 1-800-355-8498 if you have any questions concerning the registration process or the use of the electronic filing system.
