FLATTEN PDF FORMS - NOTICE FOR ELECTRONIC FILERS - CHANGE IN PROCEDURES EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY: Effective immediately, when using a PDF fillable form, the user must lock or "flatten" the PDF document after completing the form fields to ensure the document can be viewed on all devices and to prevent other users from manipulating or editing the information. The document filed and stored in CM/ECF cannot be altered once it has been filed; however, flattening the form will prevent any user from saving the document and editing the form fields. Instructions on how to flatten a pdf file can be found here.

ADVERSARY CASE OPENING - CHANGE IN PROCEDURES EFFECTIVE JUNE 26, 2017: As of June 26, 2017, there are new procedural changes for filing adversary cases. Any parties initiating an adversary case must upload the complaint at the time the adversary case is being filed in CM/ECF. Please note that in the past, the Clerk's Office permitted the filing of the complaint at some point after the adversary case was initiated. Effective June 26, 2017, the complaint must be filed within the adversary case opening event, and the appropriate fee paid, if applicable.

NOTICE OF REDACTION RESPONSIBILITY - CHANGE IN PROCEDURES EFFECTIVE MAY 14, 2015: Effective immediately this notice provides a change in the clerk's office procedures as it relates to redaction of personal identifiers. The Court reminds electronic filers of the responsibility to redact sensitive information in any document filed with the Court in compliance with Fed. R. Bankr. P. 9037. Any personal information not redacted is available to the public. The following personal data identifiers should be partially redacted from all pleadings, documents and attachments: Social Security or taxpayer identification numbers; dates of birth; names of minor children; and financial account numbers. To the extent electronic filers rely on redaction by the clerk's office, please be advised effective immediately staff will no longer provide this review and the court will no longer issue notices advising of the same.
