Attention Appellate Court Mac Filers
Apple recently released Java for Mac OS X 10.6 Update 9, which brings Mac Java up-to-date and also automatically configures web browsers to not automatically run Java applets. Because of this, a Mac user who installs OS X Update 9 will have to re-enable the Java applet. This update uninstalls the Apple-provided Java applet plug-in from all web browsers. After this update is installed, the next time a Mac user logs onto CM/ECF it will say "Missing Plug-In" and require a one-time download to be performed. Clicking "More Info" will direct a user to the Oracle web site to download the plug-in software. Instructions for doing this can be found at Apple's site by following this link: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5241. More information can be found here: http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1550.
You may encounter an issue with launching the docketing menu with the latest Mac OS (10.7 or 10.8) and Java 1.7. The problem appears to be a result of a Mac/Java 1.7 64-bit VM change in the way the Mac identifies the current active window. After the application is launched, you should minimize and then maximize the startup window before selecting a menu item from the top navigation bar, e.g. Filing > File a Document. If you remain on the same window, there is no need to minimize and maximize the window again before selecting another menu. However, if focus is placed on another menu selection, e.g. PACER reports or another utility is selected, then navigating back to the original menu may require you to minimize and maximize the window again.
If you have any questions about this notice, please contact the PACER Service Center at firstname.lastname@example.org.
