U.S. District Court, District of New Jersey
O R D E R
Effective January 31, 2005, electronic case filing will be mandatory for all civil and criminal cases other than pro se cases.
Requests by attorneys for an exemption to the mandatory policy will be considered for good cause hardship only, and will be reviewed on an individual basis by the Court. The Clerk's Office provides an electronic filing training program to assist attorneys filing electronically. Before seeking hardship exemption, attorneys are advised to participate in the training program or otherwise seek the assistance of the Clerk's Office.
