Frequently Asked Questions
TECHNICAL INFORMATION: What is the proper format for adding parties through CM/ECF?
All parties should be added using UPPER CASE letters with no punctuation unless the punctuation is a part of the name, e.g., Wal-Mart, O'Bryan, and hyphenated last names such as Smith-Jones.Only individuals or entities considered to be a party to the case should be added when required. Individuals to be served as a matter of law (i.e., the United States Attorney for this district or the United States Attorney General) should not be added to a case unless they are specifically named on the complaint. Example: Last Name Field = SMITH
First Name Field = JOHN
Middle Name Field = F
Generation Field = JR The "Title" field should always be blank. Title or other descriptive information should be added to the "Party Text" field. Example: Last Name Field = ABC CORPORATION
Party Text Field = A FLORIDA CORPORATION
