Utah District Court
On-line Fee Payments Increase
Utah is one of 21 district courts accepting fee payments online. In the second quarter of this year, those 21 courts collected $514,152 in fees from 1,874 transactions. The courts are looking forward to version 3.1 of CM/ECF in 2007 which will allow debit cards to be used -- now only credit cards are accepted.
In Utah, over 100 on-line payments have been made, mostly for pro hac vice applications.

AOL Spam Blocker Strikes NEFs
Earlier today, courts reported slow or non-delivery of NEFs to some AOL accounts. AOL had reports from their users incorrectly identifying some court email as spam and subsequently blocked e-mails from a limited number of court public IP addresses.
National court technical support contacted AOL technical support and the affected outbound court IP addresses have been added to AOL’s white-list so that all e-mails from U.S. Courts should be able to reach their designated AOL domain recipients.
AOL users who want to check any missed emails from the District of Utah may use the Emails Sent report in CM/ECF.
