All offers must be received by 12:00 noon on June 17, 2013.
Effective May 1, 2013, pursuant to Judicial Conference Policy, all federal district courts will begin charging a $50 administrative fee for filing a civil action, suit or proceeding in a district court, in addition to the $350 filing fee. The administrative fee does not apply to an application for a writ of habeas corpus or to persons granted in forma pauperis status under 28 U.S.C. § 1915.
