Technical Failures: The Clerk of Court shall deem the E.D.N.Y. NextGen CM/ECF to be subject to a technical failure on a given day if the system is unable to accept filings continuously or intermittently over the course of any period of time greater than one hour after 12:00 noon that day, in which case filings due that day which were not filed due solely to such technical failures shall become due the next business day. Such delayed filings shall be rejected unless accompanied by a declaration or affidavit attesting to the filing person’s failed attempts to file electronically at least two times after 12:00 p.m. separated by at least one hour on each day of delay due to technical failure. The Clerk shall provide notice of all such technical failures on the EDNY public web site and by means of an EDNY telephone number which persons may call to learn the status of the filing system.
