E-Filers will be able to use one login and password to e-file in every NextGen court where they have been granted e-filing privileges, rather than having to remember a separate login and password for each individual court.  The same login and password will be used to access the PACER system to view dockets and other case information for all federal courts, including those that have not yet upgraded to NextGen
