Whose responsibility is it to keep an attorney’s contact information current?

Answer: 

It is the attorney’s responsibility to keep their information current. Keeping email information current, including email information for additional recipients on their account, needs to be kept up-to-date in order for the CM/ECF system, which relies on email notifications, to function effectively. When email notices start “bouncing back”, the CM/ECF support staff are required to determine the reason the email was not delivered and resolve the situation. The CM/ECF Administrative Procedures indicate that if the attorney’s email address, mailing address, telephone or fax number changes, he/she will have five business days to update their information.
