United States District Court for the Southern District of New York Announces New Edition of Electronic Case Filing (ECF) Rules & Instructions

Per a Court Notice to the Bar dated June 5, 2015:

The United States District Court for the Southern District of New York has issued a new edition of the Court’s Electronic Case Filing (ECF) Rules & Instructions. 

The ECF Rules & Instructions were revised to reflect the new requirement, effective June 8, 2015, for parties to electronically file new civil actions using the Court’s Electronic Case Filing (ECF) system (see exceptions in the Standing Order of the Court). 

Attorneys admitted to the bar of this Court, who are registered ECF Filing Users, and attorneys seeking admission pro hac vice, will open cases and pay any required fee on-line. Summonses will be requested through the ECF system. In response, summonses suitable for printing will be issued through the ECF system. 

Any party unable to comply with the requirement for electronically commencing a new civil action through the ECF system must seek permission of the Court to file in the traditional manner, on paper.
