Agreed Orders

Proposed orders that are agreed to by all parties should NOT be filed or noticed for hearing. Instead, they should be "submitted" to the Court for consideration, modification, and electronic entry. To prevent confusion, such Agreed Orders should be attached to an email addressed to with a "cc" to all other parties. The subject line of the email should include "Agreed Order," along with the case name and case number. The Agreed Order should be submitted in a format compatible with Microsoft Word. The Court encourages parties to use this feature as opposed to filing motions to extend briefing schedules (e.g., in Social Security cases) or to modify bond conditions. Absent extenuating circumstances, the Court will enter the Agreed Order within 24 hours of receipt.
