Frequently Asked Questions About Mandatory Opening of Civil Cases

Q: Is training mandatory?
A. No. However, new case filing by attorneys is completely new to the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia and there is a lot of room for error. Deficiency notices will be sent to the judges and placed on the public docket when errors are made. In addition, training may not be readily available after July 1, 2012. Therefore, we strongly encourage training to make this transition as easy as possible for both attorneys and Clerk’s Office staff.
