On April 01, 2017, the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals increased the maximum allowable PDF file size for documents filed in the Case Management/Electronic Case Files (CM/ECF) system from 10 MB to 35 MB.
The most current release of Firefox, version 52 released 3/7/2017, does NOT work with CM/ECF.

If you have already updated to this version, you will need to use Internet Explorer (IE) to file until further notice. We are currently working on a fix for this issue.
