Notifications of Electronic Filing

The Notice of Electronic Filing is the verification that the filing has been sent electronically to the Court’s database.  It certifies that this is now an official court document, and displays the document number assigned on the docket. Copies of this verification are immediately e-mailed to those able to receive electronic notices on that case.
