What constitutes an electronic signature?

Type: 
CM/ECF (Electronic Case Filing)
Answer: 

Please consult Local Rule 5.4(C), which states:

An attorney who electronically files a document with the attorney’s handwritten or electronic signature—or who authorizes another person to electronically file such a document — is responsible for the document just as if it had been filed in hard copy with the attorney’s handwritten signature. And a party is responsible for a document electronically filed on the party’s behalf with the party’s or an attorney’s handwritten or electronic signature, just as if the document had been filed in hard copy with the party’s or attorney’s handwritten signature.
