UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK
October 12, 2011
ROBERT GEORGE GERBER, PLAINTIFF,
ISABELLA GERIATRIC CENTER, INC., DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: VIKTOR V. Pohorelsky United States Magistrate Judge
The plaintiff has submitted a request, by e-mail, for authorization to communicate by e-mails due to speech and hearing impairments. The answer depends upon the type of communication, as set forth in the following guidelines:
1. Communications with the court setting forth arguments or asking for the court to grant motions or other relief may not be made by e-mail. Such communications must be on paper, with a copy sent to the plaintiff's adversary, and are to be filed through the pro se clerks in the clerk's office;
2. Communications with the court about procedural matters are to be directed to the pro se clerks in the clerk's office. Those communications must be done in person at the clerk's office and may not be made by e-mail;
3. Communications with chambers about ministerial matters such as the time and place of conferences and filing deadlines may be made by e-mail to chambers at email@example.com;
4. Communications with adversary counsel may be made by e-mail (as has already apparently occurred), but only with the consent of adversary counsel.
