Effective October 16, 2014, the filing deadline with the United States District Court for the District of Delaware is 6:00 p.m. prevailing Eastern Time. See http://www.ded.uscourts.gov/sites/default/files/general-orders/Electronic-Case-Filing-Procedure-10-2-14.pdf. The deadline applies to every filing and service deadline, other than initial pleadings. The new rule also applies to exchanges of discovery requests and discovery responses, even if hand-delivered. Although the new deadline IS NOT applicable to cases pending before the Delaware Bankruptcy Court, the deadline DOES APPLY to bankruptcy appeals and any other bankruptcy-related cases to the extent those cases are on the District Court’s docket.
