I further agree to abide by all Court rules, orders, policies, and procedures governing the use of the Court's Electronic Case Filing System.

The combination of user ID and password will serve as my signature when filing documents. I will protect the security of my password and immediately notify the Court if it is learned that my password has been compromised by an unauthorized user.

Pursuant to Local Rule 5-3.2.2, registering as a CM/ECF user is deemed consent, for purposes of Fed. R. Civ. P. 5(b)(2)(E) to electronic service of documents through the CM/ECF system. You have the right to withhold or revoke your consent to electronic service at any time; simply complete and return a Central District Electronic Service Exemption Form (Form G-05, available from the Court's website). If the Court receives an Electronic Service Exemption Form from you, you will no longer receive notice by e-mail when Court orders or other documents are filed in cases in which you are counsel of record; instead, copies of such documents will be sent to you through the mail.
