Effective June 1, 2012, the Local Rules of the US District Court Central District will be amended

Effective June 1, 2012, the Local Rules of the US District Court Central District will be amended. Many of these amendments have to do with the requirements for e-filing, paper filing, e-service, etc., but others involve effecting service, filing documents under seal, chambers' copies of orders, etc. For instance, note the following:

L.R. 5-3.3 Service of Documents Filed Electronically. Upon the electronic filing of a document, a “Notice of Electronic Filing” (“NEF”) is automatically generated by the CM/ECF System and sent by e-mail to all attorneys in the case who are registered as CM/ECF Users and have consented to electronic service. (See L.R. 5-4.1.3.) Service by this electronic NEF constitutes service pursuant to the Federal Rules of Civil and Criminal Procedure for all attorneys who have consented to electronic service.

L.R. 5-4.7.3 Court Orders. Any order or other Court-issued document filed electronically without the original signature of a judge or clerk has the same force and effect as if the judge or clerk had signed a paper copy of the order.
