Third Circuit issues updated notice of clerk’s office procedures during the pandemic

Yesterday the Third Circuit posted an amended notice about the clerk’s office’s procedures during the pandemic. A direct link to the notice is here.

Among other things, the notice:

  • provides an email address,, for filing things that can’t be filed on ECF because there’s no case number yet;
  • notes that “litigants who cannot file through the Court’s CM/ECF system”—I’d guess this refers primarily to pro se litigants—also may use the email to file;
  • and explains that the parties may file by mail or using a drop box that the court has installed on the first floor of the courthouse.
