Request to be Removed from Notice of Electronic Filing (NEF)

Occasionally an attorney who represents a creditor or other party may wish to stop receiving electronic notice on a particular case.  If an attorney represents a creditor/client (other than the debtor) and no longer wants to receive the NEF on a particular case, the attorney must create a document in standard pleading format and caption it "Request to Be Removed From Notice of Electronic Filing".  The attorney must then file the document on the specified case.  Once the written authorization has been reviewed, we will "terminate" the attorney as requested and the attorney will no longer receive NEFs related to that particular case.
