Carr v. Bronitsky
ORDER RE REQUESTS. Signed by Judge William H. Orrick on 02/18/2016. (Attachments: # 1 Certificate/Proof of Service) (jmdS, COURT STAFF) (Filed on 2/18/2016)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
Case No. 15-cv-05781-WHO
ORDER RE REQUESTS
Re: Dkt. Nos. 4, 5
United States District Court
Northern District of California
Plaintiff has filed two letters seeking clarification as to why this bankruptcy appeal was
assigned to a judge in San Francisco (when plaintiff lives in Alameda County), and asking for
permission to be allowed to file documents electronically. Dkt. Nos. 4, 5.
Under the Court’s Civil Local Rules, a civil action which arises in Alameda County will be
automatically assigned to either the San Francisco Division or the Oakland Division of this Court.
Civ. L.R. 3-2(d). There is no procedure by which civil cases arising in Alameda County are
specifically assigned to a judge in the Oakland Division.
With respect to the request to be allowed to file electronically, plaintiff must file a formal
motion. A sample motion is attached and available at the following website:
Plaintiff does not need to file this motion with the Court in person. Instead, she can file
this motion by mail, sending it to the San Francisco Courthouse: United States District Court, 450
Golden Gate Ave., San Francisco, CA 94102.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
