Can the PHV attorney electronically sign their certification and/or the motion to appear PHV or does it have to be a wet signature?

Attorney Resources

The certification and/or PHV Motion can be electronically signed by the PHV attorney, but the
motion itself must be filed by the designated local counsel. Pursuant to Section 3J(1) and (2) of
the CM/ECF Administrative Procedures, “[a] document requiring an attorney’s signature that is
filed electronically using his/her login and password shall be considered signed when the
attorney’s name is on the signature block,” and this applies to those documents “that
require original signatures or that require either verification or a sworn declaration.”
