NOTICE TO BANKRUPTCY PRACTITIONERS REGARDING THE SCANNING OF DOCUMENTS

A notice to practitioners dated July 27, 2005, stated that paper documents submitted by an attorney not yet trained and registered to file electronically would be scanned by Clerk’s Office staff, effective August 1, 2005. Technical issues did not allow the Clerk’s Office to begin scanning as originally planned. These issues were resolved and scanning began for paper documents filed on August 15, 2005.

Petitions, adversary proceedings and other documents filed on or after August 15, 2005, will be scanned and entered on the docket by Clerk’s Office staff. The Clerk’s Office will return the original petition, schedules, statement of affairs, petition cover sheet, Rule 2016(b) statement and any amendments thereto and the attorney is required to retain these papers for five years. Claims will not be scanned until a later date.
