Guidelines for Adding Parties

INTRODUCTION

A party should be entered as much as possible in the way it appears on the complaint. Users entering party names must enter party names as they appear in the caption of the complaint and must be in strict compliance with this court's standards and guidelines. The standards and guidelines contained herein are based on practical considerations that may bear on how or if parties are accessed and searched by users of CM/ECF reports, dockets, and party index as well as PACER.
