· Electronic Submission
Except as the presiding Judge in a case may otherwise direct, an attorney submitting a proposed order to the Clerk of Court shall do so electronically (by uploading the order) via ECF. [See the Procedures Manual for guidance on uploading orders.] [See Appendix C for Order format.]
· Non-Electronic Submission
Parties who are not required or authorized to be e-filers shall provide one copy of the proposed order on paper [See Appendix C for Order format.]
· Signed Orders
All orders shall be signed electronically. Any docketed order or other court-issued document has the same force and effect as if the Judge or the Clerk had signed a paper copy.
Parties are responsible for ensuring that any order (even if distributed by the Clerk) is sent to the proper entities. Service of an order can be determined by looking at the Bankruptcy Noticing Center (BNC) Certificate of Service, which appears on the docket approximately three days after filing.
