Lawyer’s Right Hand (“LRH”) has come through with another must read post about the Electronic Court Filing (“ECF”) system – click here for my last post about LRH’s ECF guide and click here for LRH’s most recent ECF post. LRH reminds that logging on to a court’s ECF system is equivalent to a signature. That means that if you electronically sign a document, you should use your ECF login to file it. Similarly, if one of your colleagues signs the document that colleague should use her ECF account for filing. LRH also points out that because the ECF login acts as a signature, there is no need to keep a separate signed version of the electronically filed document in your files.
Thank you to LRH for another excellent post.
