If you are an FCBA member, you can access Fastcase using the login below. Fastcase login is currently not functioning. While we work to resolve this issue, you can access Fastcase by creating a temporary account here: Fastcase Gateway

Once created, it will be valid for 7 days but if you contact the support team at Fastcase indicating you are from the Federal Circuit Bar Association, they'll extend the end date. While in your account, there's a chat option in the lower right hand corner of the screen that can be used to request the extension.
