Mandatory E-Filing In All Cases on One Year Anniversary
On May 1, 2006, the one year anniversary of the implementation of CM/ECF in the District of Utah, electronic filing became mandatory in all cases for almost all filers. Some documents and filers are excluded from mandatory e-filing, but the exceptions are few. On May 1st, the percentage of docketed documents that were docketed by counsel was very high! Of 342 documents filed, 163 were filed by out-of-court users. Over 47% of documents docketed that day were e-filed by counsel or their staff.
