Frequently Asked Questions
E-FILING: Can I rely on the deadline or hearing date/time found within the docket text when litigating a case?
No. Attorneys are responsible for tracking deadlines and hearings. Deadlines calculated by the CM/ECF system may have extra days added for court case management purposes. These deadlines should not be relied upon for case litigation purposes.
Informational resources for determining deadlines and/or hearings are as follows:
- The text of any text-only notice of hearing/order, i.e., notices or orders entered by the court directly on the docket without the addition of a PDF document;
- The PDF document that constitutes the electronic order or hearing notice;
- The Local Rules for this district; and
- The Federal Rules.
Please consult the Attorney User's Guide for more information.
