As we approach the advent of electronic filing of the W.D. Va., I have gotten around to reading the new standing order on the use of personal information in court papers. The standing order deals with the non-disclosure of Social Security numbers, birth dates, financial account numbers, and names of minor children.
We still have no local rules in the W.D. Va. Of how many other districts, I wonder, can that be said? I have a few pending cases outside the W.D. Va., and the local rules in those other districts have always helped me.
