Good suggestion by Magistrate Judge David Nuffer

Magistrate Judge David Nuffer has a wonderful blog regarding Utah District Court CMECF updates.  If you haven’t had a chance, I highly recommend that you take some time to read through this very helpful blog.

As many of you already know, it is now required to electronically file most documents with the court (as opposed to bringing it to the clerk’s office and filing the paper copy with the clerk).

The Judge’s latest blog entry brings up a great point.  If you’re going to ask the court to act on something, its best to file the document as a “Motion” and not a “Request.” Magistrate Judge Nuffer indicates that a “request” will not appear on the court’s motion reports, which some courts, judges and law clerks use as a “to do” list. 

If its not on the “to do” list (as generated by the computer), the “request” may never get acted upon.
