On December 1, 2017, the Bankruptcy Court for the Central District of California will implement a significant change in its signature requirements for documents filed through CM/ECF.
As of December 1, 2017, the Electronic Filing Declaration will not be accepted for CM/ECF filings. Documents requiring the signature of a debtor or any other party (with the exception of registered CM/ECF filers and certain employees thereof) must bear a holographic signature of the debtor or such other signing party.
On December 1, 2017, new Local Bankruptcy Rule 9011-1 Signatures and an amended Court Manual Section 3.4 Signatures will become effective and specify the signature requirements for documents filed through CM/ECF. Please click on the following links to view the pending changes:
