Requirements for attorney change of address:

An attorney whose mailing address, telephone or fax number has changed, he/she must change their address on the PACER system and shall timely file a Notice of Change of Address in every active case in which that attorney is the attorney of record [See Local Rule 1.3(d)]. If the attorney has no open cases, he/she must change their address on the PACER system only.

Each Attorney is required to login into the PACER system using their own login and password to change their email address. Secondarily e-mail address management is done locally at ecf.nysd.uscourts.gov under Utilities > Maintain User Account.
