Important Change to Documentation for Original Non-Attorney Signatures, Section II.C.1.

When an individual other than a Registrant is required to sign a document that is filed electronically, the Registrant shall include in a single filing with the document, a scanned or otherwise electronically replicated copy of the document's signature page bearing the individual's original signature.

By filing the document and signature page, the Registrant declares under penalty of perjury that the scanned signature was part of the original document.

The local forms, Declaration Regarding Electronic Filing of Petition and Accompanying Documents and the Declaration Regarding Electronic Filing for Documents Filed After Petition will no longer be required when this change is implemented.

If you have any questions, please contact our CM/ECF Help Desk @ 312-408-7765.
