UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS FOR THE FIRST CIRCUIT John Joseph Moakley U.S. Courthouse 1 Courthouse Way, Suite 2500 Boston, MA 02210 (617) 748-9057 www.ca1.uscourts.gov DOCKETING STATEMENT INSTRUCTIONS 1. Counsel for appellant must file a docketing statement for every case appealed or cross appealed to the First Circuit Court of Appeals. The docketing statement must be received by the court of appeals clerk's office within fourteen days after the case is docketed to be deemed timely filed. Copies must be served on all parties to the action below and, in counseled civil cases, on the First Circuit Settlement Counsel. The attorney filing the notice of appeal is responsible for filing the docketing statement, even if different counsel will handle the appeal. In the case of multiple appellants represented by separate counsel, the parties must confer and decide who will file the docketing statement. Appellants proceeding pro se may file a docketing statement, but are not required to do so. The docketing statement is also used by the First Circuit Settlement Counsel to facilitate prebriefing review of civil cases in which all parties are represented by counsel and in mediation conducted in such cases under 1st Cir. R. 33.0. If counsel in a civil case believes a mediation conference would be beneficial, counsel may make a confidential request for mediation by contacting the Office of the Settlement Counsel directly at (617) 748-9624. Counsel's failure to file the docketing statement within the time set forth will cause the court to initiate the process for dismissal of the appeal under 1st Cir. R. 3.0. If an opposing party concludes that the docketing statement is in any way inaccurate, incomplete or misleading, that party should file any additions or corrections to the docketing statement with the clerk's office within seven days of service of the docketing statement, with copies to all other parties. You must attach to the docketing statement: Additional pages containing extended answers to questions on this form. A certificate of service for this docketing statement indicating it has been served on all parties to the action below and, in counseled civil cases, on First Circuit Settlement Counsel.
