All orders, decrees, judgments, and proceedings of the court will be filed in accordance with these rules, which will constitute entry on the docket kept by the clerk under Fed. R. Crim. P. 49 and Fed. R. Crim. P. 55. The court or court personnel will file all such documents electronically. Any such document filed electronically without the original signature of a judge, magistrate judge, or clerk has the same force and effect as if the judge, magistrate judge, or clerk, respectively, had signed a paper copy of the order and it had been entered on the docket in a conventional manner.

Orders may be issued as “text-only” entries on the docket without an attached document. Such orders are official and binding.

The court may issue a warrant or summons electronically, but a warrant or summons may only be served in accordance with Fed. R. Crim. P. 4(c).

A Filing User shall not submit a proposed order by electronic filing, either as an attachment to a corresponding motion or otherwise. Rather, proposed orders shall be submitted directly to the appropriate judge, magistrate judge, or clerk in the form and manner set forth in the Administrative Procedures Guide.
