Notice of Proposed Amendment to Local Rule 25.0

Tuesday, July 11, 2017

The United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit hereby provides notice that it proposes the attached amendment to Local Rule 25.0. Additions are noted in italic print; deletions are noted in strikeout print. An explanation for the proposed amendment follows.

Local Rule 25.0 is being amended to incorporate the text of the court's September 14, 2009 Administrative Order Regarding Case Management/Electronic Case Files System ("CM/ECF"). If the proposed amendments are adopted, they will supersede the administrative order, which will no longer be in effect.

Aside from some stylistic changes necessitated by the incorporation of the text of the order into the local rules, there are some minor changes to reflect the implememtation of CJA eVoucher and to permit electronic filing of case initiating documents, such as petitions for review and petitions for a writ of mandamus.

The Court of Appeals invites public comment on the proposed amendment. Comments should be received by August 10, 2017 and addressed to:

Office of the Clerk
U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit
