Proposed Amendment to Local Rules - Comments Requested by July 12, 2019.

After reviewing the court's local rules for consistency with the current federal rules, the court has determined that local civil rule CVLR 77 requires modification.  The federal rules now consider registration for electronic filing as constituting consent to service by electronic means using the transmission facilities of the court and a party may consent to electronic service by other means.  In addition, the court has retitled its administrative procedures for electronic filing, and intends to modify local criminal rule CRLR 49 to reflect this change.
