Change of Practice for Certified Documents
On September 20, 2010, the Bankruptcy Court for the Central District of California will change its practice for indicating that a copy of a document filed at the Court has been certified to be an authentic and accurate copy.
Effective September 20, 2010, copies of filed documents certified by a Bankruptcy Court employee will have a watermarked certification sheet attached to the certified document. An embossed gold seal will be placed over the staple at the top left hand corner of the certification sheet and a Court seal will be embossed over the Bankruptcy Court employee’s signature. The current practice of using a red ribbon and grommet for indicating a copy has been certified by the Court will be discontinued at that time.
A sample of the certification sheet is attached to this Public Notice on the Court’s website (www.cacb.uscourts.gov). Authenticity of documents filed at the Court can also be verified by accessing the online document entered in a case using PACER. PACER is available for a fee to registered users, or at no cost at all divisions of the Bankruptcy Court.
