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

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 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.
