By submitting this registration form, the submitter agrees to abide by the following:

1. Rule 9011 of the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure requires that every pleading, motion, and other paper (except lists, schedules, statements, or amendments thereto) filed with the Court be signed by at least one attorney of record or, if the party is not represented by an attorney, by the party. The unique password issued to an attorney, trustee or filing agent registered to use the Electronic Case Filing System identifies that attorney, trustee and/or filing agent to the Court each time that the electronic Case Filing System is accessed. The use of the court issued password of the filing agent serves as and constitutes the signature of the attorney or trustee for purposes of Bankruptcy Rule 9011 on any document or pleading filed electronically using the court issued password. Therefore, all filers must protect and secure the password issued by the Court. If any reason exists to suspect the password has been compromised in any way, it is the duty and responsibility of the filer to whom the password is issued to notify the Court immediately. The Court will thereafter immediately delete the password from the Electronic Case Filing System and issue a new password.

2. The submitter has read the local rules of this Court, and particularly Local Bankruptcy Rule 5005 as well as the Administrative Procedures for Filing, Signing, and Verifying Pleadings and Papers by Electronic Means, including all attachments, and understands the obligations imposed by these rules and procedures. The submitter further understands the obligation to maintain in the submitters's possession a complete and original of every electronically filed verified pleading for a period as specified in the court's Rules. The electronic filing of any Verified Pleading constitutes the attorney's or trustee's signature and certifies that at the time of filing, the attorney or trustee has possession of the complete Verified Pleading bearing the original signature of each person who affirmed or swore to the truth of the matter set forth in the Verified Pleading and the original signature of each person who administered an oath, such as a notary public.

3. By this registration, the submitter waives conventional service of documents and pleadings, including notice under Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure 2002 and service under Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure 7004 except as provided by this Court's local rules or Administrative Procedures for Filing, Signing, and Verifying Pleadings and Papers by Electronic Means.
