Just now we went to EFS-Web and for the first time since August 14, it seemed to permit logging in to the ordinary EFS-Web system.
And we went to Private PAIR and it seemed to permit logging in.
In EFS-Web we then paid the Issue Fee in one of our cases using the online issue fee payment screen.
We then went to Private PAIR and obtained from IFW a copy of what we just filed.
We then clicked on the “Fees” tab in Private PAIR and it showed the fee that we had just paid.
Of course it is too soon to know whether this means the systems are back to normal. But it looks like maybe things are moving in the right direction.
