Transcripts of bankruptcy hearings can now be requested through CM/ECF. They can still be ordered via regular mail and over the phone, but requesting a transcript through CM/ECF can be done at any time of the day, not just during the Clerk's office hours.
To order a transcript through CM/ECF, log on with the CM/ECF username and password (not PACER login). Make a text entry in the case requesting a transcript. Since this is a text entry event, a pdf document is not prepared and uploaded to the system.
