New Local Rules and Procedures

Monday, July 1, 2019

With the approval of the 11th Circuit Judicial Council, we have updated two local rules: 5005-1 and 9037-1. Local Rule 5005-1 requires you to docket attachments to a filing in a particular way, and Local Rule 9037-1 completely changes how we process redactions (a change that will be effective nationwide on Dec 1, 2019, with a new change to the Bankruptcy Rules).

To assist you with these new procedures, we have drafted two procedural guides: Adding Attachments to a Document in ECF and Procedure for Attorneys Filing Redactions. Both guides can be found on our website,, under Attorney Resources > ECF Procedures for Attorneys.

These new local rules are effective immediately.
