On Friday December 6, 2013 the Judiciary's data center suffered an unexpected power outage. Since the outage started in the emergency power backup system all computer equipment lost power. This outage also caused several pieces of equipment to fail which required replacements.
JEFS was unavailable starting at about 2:40 PM until 7:30PM. We apologize for any inconvenience. Please contact the JEFS Help Line in your county shown below if you have any further questions or concerns.
ADVISORY: JEFS users should be aware that efiling queues may slow down prior to system shut down at 12:00 a.m. This may relate to efiling volume, network, and other technical variables outside of JEFS. This may occasionally cause the efiling submission to fail to complete. To avoid this problem, please give yourself enough time to address technical issues prior to filing deadlines.
