1. Prerequisite to Live Access
2. Training Sessions
To assist prospective Electronic Filers in fulfilling the above prerequisite, each Authorizing Court shall conduct classroom or on-line training sessions as needed to train prospective Electronic Filers and shall reserve the right to organize such training sessions according to party-type (e.g., trustees, debtor attorneys, creditor attorneys, etc.). Staff members associated with prospective Electronic Filers, such as paralegals and legal assistants, are strongly encouraged to attend these sessions.
Attorneys who are admitted to practice before an Authorizing Court and who have been authorized to file documents by electronic means in another federal district may become an Electronic Filer in the Authorizing Court upon a demonstration of the ability to docket pleadings successfully to that Court’s training system. Such reciprocity requests should be presented to the Clerk of the Authorizing Court who shall exercise sole discretion as to whether such reciprocity request should be granted or whether additional training requirements should be imposed.
