E-Rule 10: Electronic Signatures

(a) Where a signature is required, the typed underlined name of the CM/ECF User, under whose log-in and password the document is submitted, must be preceded by an "/s/" and typed in the space where the signature would otherwise appear. See E-Rule 1(a)(2).


(b) CM/ECF Users are responsible for protecting the security and integrity of a CM/ECF User's log-in and password. No person may knowingly permit or cause to permit a CM/ECF User's log-in and password to be used by anyone other than an authorized agent of the CM/ECF User. See E-Rule 3(e).


(c) Electronically represented signatures are considered valid signatures. If any individual objects to the representation of his or her signature on an electronic document, he or she must, within 10 calendar days of its filing, file a notice setting forth the basis of the objection.
