In November 2011 the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania implemented several procedure changes and revised filing instructions for e-filers.  As the court continues to review its current procedures and ECF events, new procedures and revised filing instructions for e-filers will be announced in advance of implementation.  Depending on the topic matter, the court may seek feedback from e-filers prior to implementation.  E-filers are encouraged to visit the court’s website to stay informed of the changes.
