Changes to Submitting Proposed Orders, effective August 14, 2012
Effective Tuesday, August 14, 2012, the Clerk’s Office will implement an electronic proposed order submission program called E-Orders. The E-Orders program allows attorneys and trustees to submit proposed orders electronically through the CM/ECF system.
All proposed orders submitted for Judge Thuma are required to be submitted electronically via E-Orders in CM/ECF unless otherwise directed by chambers. All proposed orders submitted electronically to Judge Thuma must conform to the requirements set forth in the electronic filing procedures. It is highly recommended that all proposed orders be created using a word processor (i.e., WordPerfect, Word, etc.) and printed to PDF, not scanned.
At this time, the process for submitting proposed orders will not change for Judge Jacobvitz. All proposed orders are still required to be submitted via e-mail at email@example.com. It is anticipated that proposed orders for Judge Jacobvitz will transition to the E-Orders system in early September, and another notice will be sent prior to that phase of this change.
ECF trainers are providing E-Orders training at the Clerk’s Office on Friday, August 3, 2012, beginning every half hour from 9:00 a.m. through 11:00 a.m. and Wednesday, August 8, 2012, from 9:00 a.m. through 2:00 p.m. This includes a question and answer session after the fifteen minute presentation. Training will cover topics such as:
- How to prepare and upload proposed orders to E-Orders.
- What happens to the proposed order once it is uploaded?
- Who edits proposed orders and how?
It is not necessary to register. Please feel free to just show up for training on the half hour.
If you cannot attend the training in person, customized online training is available using the step-by-step procedures and the video tutorials in the Electronic Filing Manual.
Of course, if you need additional help, please contact the CM/ECF help desk for assistance at 505-348-2500 or toll-free at 866-291-6805 – select option 3. Thank you for your cooperation with this change in how orders are submitted to the Court.
