Public Comment Sought for Proposed Rule Changes

Tuesday, May 29, 2018

The United States District Courts for the Eastern and Southern Districts of New York have adopted revisions to the Local Civil Rules and invite public comment. 

Local Civil Rule 55.1 has been revised to require a request for a Clerk’s Certificate of Default to be filed electronically. Local Civil Rule 67.1 has been revised to require a proposed Order for Deposit in an interest-bearing account to be filed electronically. 

Revisions have also been made to the rule regarding fees related to interest bearing accounts and new tax administration procedures for such accounts.

Local Civil Rule 77.1 has been revised to remove the prohibition on the electronic filing of proposed orders, judgments and decrees.

The modified Local Rules are detailed in this Public Notice.
