The Other Documents menu contains various events that vary in type. Select the event, select attorney, select party, and link party filer. Select the type of event to be filed from the multi-select list. Multiple events may be selected simultaneously.
(a) Proposed Documents See LR 5-9(c)
- Proposed Forms of Orders or Judgments: Proposed forms of orders or judgments, when requested, are to be docketed and served and clearly identified as proposed documents. In addition to a generic form of proposed order or judgment event, there are also specific events for certain types of proposed orders.
- Proposed Amended Pleadings: When leave of the Court is sought for filing an amended pleading or document, first choose the appropriate motion event. The proposed amended pleading is to be filed as an attachment to the motion event. The attachment description must be "Proposed Document."
- Proposed Pretrial Order - Individual: Use this event to file a proposed pretrial order submitted on behalf of an individual party or fewer than all the parties represented in the case.
- Proposed Pretrial Order - Joint: Use this event to file a proposed pretrial order submitted on behalf of all parties represented in the case.
(b) Ex parte Submissions
Ex parte submissions to the Court may be made electronically by selection of the ex parte function (0ex1 or 0ex2, see bullet points below) in addition to the event to be filed. For information about submitting documents in camera or under seal, see LR 5-2, LR 5-5, and LR 26-4.
- Select 0ex1 - Ex Parte Docket Entry and Document when the existence of the entry and the contents of the document are to be restricted to only the filer and the Court.

(c) Sealed Submissions
Effective December 1, 2020, LR 5-2 permits attorneys who are Registered Users in the District of Oregon to file documents under seal with prior authorization by a judge. Authorized sealed submissions may be made by selection of the sealed function (0seal – Seal Entry and Document) in addition to the event to be filed. Because the filing is sealed, no NEF will issue and the filing will not be publicly available.
(d) Consents to Proceed Before a Magistrate Judge
Effective March 6, 2017, individual party Consents to Proceed Before a Magistrate Judge are to be filed electronically. See Standing Order 2017-4.
To file a consent to magistrate judge jurisdiction, use the Consent to Magistrate – by Party event, which is found by clicking Civil and selecting Consents under the Other Filings heading. Individual party consents do not include the name of the filer, and the PDF attached to the entry is restricted to protect the voluntariness of the party's consent under 28 U.S.C. § 636(c)(2).
Pursuant to Standing Order 06-mc-9130, the United States has consented to magistrate judge jurisdiction in Social Security cases (see Standing Order for details). Accordingly, docketing of the Consent to Magistrate – by Party event in a case with NOS code 863, 864, or 865 will be docketed as Consent by All Parties to Jurisdiction by U.S. Magistrate Judge.
(e) Documents Filed Pursuant to an Existing Protective Order
Pursuant to LR 26-4(c), Registered Users are required to file documents authorized to be restricted to case participants pursuant to an existing protective order via CM/ECF.
If a protective order exists in a civil case, the user will be asked during filing if the document should be restricted to case participants pursuant to a protective order.
Selecting "Yes" will restrict access to the document only (not the docket entry) to participants in the case. Selecting "No" will not restrict the document.
At the final warning screen, the user will be able to see the Document Restricted According to Protective Order text indicating the PDF attached to the docket entry is restricted.
