Local Rules Now Allow Attorneys to File Motions to Seal Electronically

As of December 1, 2020, attorneys will file motions to seal and documents that are the subjects of those motions in CM/ECF rather than in paper. This change applies in both criminal and civil cases. See LR 5-2(e); L. Crim. R. 49-1. For filing instructions, see Sections 10 and 11 of the CM/ECF User Manual.   

Self-represented parties may use any method authorized by  2020-8 Amended In Re Pro Se Filing by E-Mail in Response to COVID-19.pdf to file motions to seal and documents that are the subjects of those motions.
