The United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit will open on time on Thursday, February 21, 2019. Unscheduled leave and telecommuting are authorized as approved by supervisors. Chambers staff should follow the policy of their respective judges.

Due to inclement weather, the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit will be closed on Wednesday, February 20, 2019. For purposes of computation of time and for motions to enlarge time under Fed. R. App. Proc. 26 and Fed. Cir. R. 26, February 20, 2019, will be considered a “legal holiday.” Telework-ready employees should follow their office’s policies.

Due to the inaccessibility of the court’s electronic filing system during the evening of February 15, 2019, all deadlines for electronic filings that fell on February 15, 2019, will be extended to February 19, 2019.  See Fed. R. App. P. 26(a)(3)(A).  Counsel who missed filing deadlines due to this outage but who file their due documents on or before February 19, 2019, will not be not required to submit a motion to the court and related affidavit required by Fed. Cir. R. 25(c)(1)(J). The full notice is available here.

The United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit's electronic filing system (CM/ECF) is experiencing technical difficulties and as such electronic filing is currently inaccessible.  At this time, there is no estimated time as to when services will be fully restored but additional information will be posted once it becomes available.  Meanwhile, counsel should review Federal Rule of Appellate Procedure 26(a) and Federal Circuit Rule 25(c)(1)(J) regarding time-sensitive filings due during this period of technical inaccessibility for any filings due on February 15, 2019.
