Southern District Adds Electronic Pleadings

, New York Law Journal


Attorneys in the Southern District soon will be required to file amended pleadings in civil cases directly to the district's Electronic Case Filing (ECF) system.

    Why not everything by e-filing? Many federal districts require new actions (other than TROs and the like) to be initiated via ECF. It makes life MUCH simpler. If all these other districts can do it that way, why not the venerable "Mother Court," as it often calls itself?
