Beginning December 1, 2014, attorneys filing new civil actions will be required by amended Local Rule 3-2 to file their case-initiating document(s) electronically, using the Court’s Case Management/Electronic Case Filing System (CM/ECF), unless exempted from electronic filing by amended Local Rule 5-4.2. (The amended local rules effective December 1, 2014, will be available on the Court’s website at http://www.cacd.uscourts.gov/court-procedures/local-rules; amended Local Rule 3-2 may be previewed at http://www.cacd.uscourts.gov/news/changes-local-rules-proposed-become-effective-december-1-2014.)  All other documents required to be filed concurrently with the case-initiating document, including the Civil Cover Sheet (Form CV-71), and Notice of Interested Parties, must also be filed electronically.  Any filing fee that is required must be paid online at the time the case-initiating document is filed, unless a request to proceed in forma pauperis is filed concurrently.
