I also consent to receiving notice of filings pursuant to Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure via the Court’s electronic filing system. The combination of login and password will serve as my official signature when I file documents in the system. I must protect the security of my password. If I believe that my password has been compromised, I must immediately notify the Court and must apply for a new password using the Forgotten Password link on the CM/ECF section of the EDVA Internet site.

    Note
    : You will not receive Notices of Electronic Filing (NEFs) from our Court if your e-mail filtering software blocks transmission from our CM/ECF address -- cmecf@vaed.uscourts.gov. We will turn off your electronic noticing until any filter blocking issue is resolved.

    I accept the above rules and guidelines. (If you do not check this box, your application will not be submitted)
