Modified Filing Procedures for Highly Sensitive Documents

The Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts provided notice on January 6, 2021, of a national breach of the CM/ECF system and called upon courts to implement new security procedures to protect highly sensitive documents (HSDs). We do not know if the breach impacted EDPA specifically. Most HSDs are filed under seal as preliminary documents in criminal cases. For more information, visit www.uscourts.gov

On January 22, 2021 a Standing Order regarding the Procedures Governing the Filing or Retrieval of Highly Sensitive Documents was issued by the Eastern District of Pennsylvania: Standing Order - Procedures Governing the Filing or Retrieval of Highly Sensitive Documents.
