Effective this Thursday, November 1, Chief Judge Holderman has revised the general order on electronic filing to allow for electronic filing of initiating documents, such as complaints and notices of appeal. E-filers will also be able to pay fees online. And if all other parties to a case are registered e-filers, you will no longer be required to file a separate certificate of service with filed documents. Of course, in my experience some parties have already done away with the certificate of service for electronically filed documents. For more specifics on the new rules, click here.
