UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK
April 13, 2006
BARBARA J. RICCIO, PLAINTIFF(S),
GENT UNIFORM RENTAL CORPORATION, DEFENDANT(S).
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Wall, Magistrate Judge
Before the court is letter from John N. Fath, Esq., on behalf of the defendant, seeking exemption from mandatory electronic filing. That exemption is denied. As a threshold matter, Mr. Fath is not the attorney of record, and the court's records do not show that he is admitted to practice in this District. Even if he were admitted, the exemption would be denied on the information provided. If Mr. Fath has a word processing program and an email address, the court does not understand why he could not substantially comply with the electronic filing requirements and receive electronic notification of court orders. If Mr. Fath is admitted and he has further information about why electronic filing would be a hardship, he may renew the motion after making an appearance as attorney of record.
