NOTICE REGARDING DESIGNATION OF CASE INTO ELECTRONIC FILING SYSTEM AND ELECTRONIC FILING OF PAPERS
Effective June 9, 2006, all criminal cases assigned to the Hon. Alvin W. Thompson are designated as electronically filed ("e-filed") cases subject to the enclosed Electronic Filing Order. All pleadings, with the exception of sealed documents, will be required to be filed electronically. Counsel are hereby notified that the procedures contained in the District's CM/ECF Policies and Procedures Manual as well as Judge Thompson's Electronic Filing Order apply. All activity in the case (e.g., pleadings, orders, notices and calendars) will be filed/sent electronically from that date forward. Any requests for an exemption to such designation must be filed within 10 days of appearing and will be considered for good cause hardship reasons only. If counsel believe that this case should not be designated as an e-filed case, or if doing so would present an undue burden on counsel or the parties, you must advise the court of the same by filing a pleading seeking to be exempt. (Such a request may be filed nonelectronically.) Attorneys are advised to participate in the training program offered by the Clerk's Office or to use the CM/ECF Tutorial on our website (www.ctd.uscourts.gov/cmecf) to become familiar with the system. Counsel, if not already registered, are required to submit a registration request and obtain an electronic filing login and password from the Clerk's Office. The registration forms and electronic filing policies are available on the court's website at www.ctd.uscourts.gov/cmecf.
