NOTICE TO BANKRUPTCY PRACTITIONERS REGARDING ELECTRONIC FILING OF CASES AND PLEADINGS

Beginning August 1, 2005, the official record of cases and pleadings filed in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Michigan will be maintained electronically. As attorneys are trained and registered, they will be expected to file all papers by electronic means. If a practitioner presents a paper document for filing after they have been trained and registered to file electronically, the practitioner will be contacted by the Court to explain why the document was not filed by electronic means. A mandatory date for electronic filing will be determined at a meeting of theCourt next month.
