New W.D. Va. standing order on filing cases

I read this new order and wondered whether it is somehow related to the opinion in Cornett v. Weisenbarger by Judge Williams, dealing with a case of late payment of the filing fee (among other things).

It would seem to simplify the issue Judge Williams confronted, in addition to dealing with multiple payments of the filing fee.

The filing fee is the weakest link in electronic filing, I've had the experience myself where the credit card on file had expired, and so the clerk's office would not charge the account until someone called and gave them the new expiration date.
