Preparing for PDF/A in the US Courts


US Courts are beginning to make the move to PDF/A as their preferred technical standard for electronic case filing in the Case Management and Electronic Case Filing (CM/ECF) system. Though no specific deadline has been set overall, each Court may determine its own deadline–and for some jurisdictions it may be soon. According to blogger Bruce Carton, “In the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania, for example, the court will start posting documents in PDF/A format beginning June 1, 2011, and all court ECF filings uploaded on or after Jan. 1, 2012, must be in PDF/A format.” If the thought of such a conversion catches you unaware, a primer is available from the PIT IP Tech Blog.
