Adoption Of Docket Numbering
Effective March 24, 2014, the entries on the court’s dockets, available through PACER, will be numbered. The court has adopted the numbering convention for easier review and reference to docket entries.

On some existing dockets, gaps may appear in the numbering sequence. These are not errors or deletions. Rather, this is due to the fact that prior to January 1, 2014, all events, even internal purely administrative entries, received a number. Any gaps represent non-public technical entries. Any questions may be directed to the Clerk’s Office. After January 1, 2014 only public entries were assigned numbers.
