  1. I will employ the Electronic Case File system for cases filed in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York.
  2. I will meet all hardware and software requirements promulgated by the Court for system use. I understand that the current minimum requirements for filing documents are: a personal computer running a standard platform (Windows, Mac OS, Linux), an Internet provider, Adobe Acrobat Exchange 3.01 or higher [to convert word processor format documents to portable document format (.pdf)] and a document scanner. [CM/ECF has been tested and works correctly with Firefox 2.0 and Internet Explorer 6.0 and 7.0.]
  3. Each use of my password for filing documents will meet the requirements of Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11, Federal Rule of Bankruptcy Procedure 9011 and Local Rule of Bankruptcy Procedure 9011-1
  4. The use of my password constitutes my signature on the documents being submitted. If I submit a document for another party, it is my responsibility to maintain a copy of that document bearing the signer's signature in my records.
  5. The issuance of a password to me constitutes a waiver of conventional service pursuant to Local Bankruptcy Rule 5005-2 and the Procedures for the Filing, Signing, and Verification of Documents by Electronic Means. I agree to accept a Notice of electronic filing by hand, facsimile, first class mail or authorized e-mail in lieu of conventional service and I will endeavor to use the automatic e-mail notification feature of the Electronic Case File System whenever feasible.
  6. Notwithstanding #5 herein, with respect to service of documents filed electronically which require service to be made on the United States and its agencies, corporations or officers, I will fully comply with Rules 2002(j) and 7004(b)(4), (5) and (6) of the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure and Rule 4(I) and (j) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.
  7. Pursuant to Local Bankruptcy Rule 5005-2, the Procedures for the Filing, Signing, and Verification of Documents by Electronic Means state that if documents being submitted electronically have lengthy exhibits, the filing of relevant excerpts of the exhibits is preferred and permitted without prejudice to the filer's right to file additional excerpts or the complete exhibit with the Court at any time.
  8. I will promptly pay all filing fees via the Internet or to the Clerk's Office in accordance with 28 U.S.C. §1930 and / or any other applicable provisions, including, if applicable, the fee due upon the signing of an order to appear pro hac vice.
