United States Department of He, et al District Court Docket No: 3:1 0-cv-0009 1 -RV-EMT THE COURT HAS IMPLEMENTED A PROGRAM IN THIS DISTRICT REQUIRING PARTIES IN THIS APPEAL TO FILE EXPANDED RECORD EXCERPTS. PLEASE READ THE ENCLOSED INSTRUCTIONS FOR PREPARING EXPANDED RECORD EXCERPTS. CIVIL APPEALS ARE GOVERNED BY STRINGENT PROCEDURES FOR REQUESTING EXTENSIONS OF TIME TO FILE BRIEFS AND RECORD EXCERPTS. RULES PROVIDE FOR DISMISSAL WITHOUT FURTHER NOTICE WHEN A BRIEF OR RECORD EXCERPTS IS NOT FILED OR CORRECTED WITHIN THE TIME PERMITTED. PLEASE SEE THE CIRCUIT RULES AT WWW.CAI I .USCOURTS.GOV The referenced case was docketed in this court on March 9, 2011. Please use the appellate docket number noted above when making inquiries. Motions for extensions of time to file a brief are frowned upon by the court. Pursuant to 11th Cir. R. 12-1, the record in this appeal was deemed completed and filed on the date the appeal was docketed in this court.
Eleventh Circuit Rule 31-1 requires that APPELLANT'S BRIEF AND RECORD EXCERPTS BE SERVED AND FILED ON OR BEFORE April 18,2011. This is the only notice you will receive concerning the due date for filing briefs and record excerpts. (In cross-appeals pursuant to Fed.R.App.P. 28(h), the party who first files a notice of appeal is the appellant unless the parties otherwise agree.) See Fed.R.App.P. 28, 30, 31 and 32, and the corresponding circuit rules, for further information on preparing briefs and record excerpts. In addition to providing the required number of paper copies of briefs, all parties (except pro se parties) are required, additionally, to provide briefs in electronic format as described in 11th Cir. R. 31-5 and the instructions provided on the court's Web site. Electronic briefs must be in Adobe Acrobat ® PDF file format. The electronic brief must be completely contained in one PDF file, i.e., cover page through and including the certificate of service. An EDF ID number is needed to upload your brief. If you don't already have an EDF number, please contact the clerk assigned to your case. When uploading a brief for the first time, you will be prompted to register and create a password known only by you for all future uploads. We have not yet received the Certificate of Interested Persons and Corporate Disclosure Statement (CIP) required by FRAP 26.1 and the accompanying circuit rules. The rules provide that the certificate must be filed by every appellant [and cross-appellant] with this court within 14 days after the date the appeal is docketed in this court, or along with the filing in this court by any party of any motion, petition, or pleading, whichever occurs first. The rules further provide that on the same day a paper certificate is served, the party filing it must also complete the court's web-based certificate at the "Electronic Filing" link of the court's website, www.cai I uscourtsgov , by electronically providing the information required for that form. Only the ticker symbols for publicly traded corporations that are listed on the paper CIP must be entered in the web-based system. If your CIP does not include any publicly traded corporations, you are required to go to the website and simply click the button indicating that you have no publicly traded corporations to report. Pro se parties are not required or authorized to complete the web-based certificate. You are hereby notified that the clerk is not authorized to submit to the court any brief (except for the reply brief of an appellant or cross-appellant), petition, answer, motion or response that does not contain the certificate, but may receive and retain the papers pending supplementation of the papers with the required certificate. You are also hereby notified that failure to submit the required certificate will result in your document(s) being returned unfiled which may ultimately result in dismissal of your appeal.
