From: Alan Sugarman <sugarman[_at_]hyperlaw.com>
Date: Sat, 21 Sep 1996 21:12:28 -0400 (EDT)

ALERT   We have now received the actual copy of the September 18, 1996 order of Judge Paul L. Friedman in US v. Thomson. The order contains IMPORTANT DIFFERENCES from the description of the order in the Docket Sheet which was downloaded from PACER. Another lesson on not relying on Pacer.

Here is the order:

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: 

ORDER   The case was transferred from Judge R. Richey to Judge Paul L. Friedman on September 16, 1996. Having reviewed the case file and finding certain required papers absent, it is hereby  

ORDERED that all corporate parties and potential intervenors who have already filed pleadings or motions with the Court and failed to comply with Rule 109 of the Rules for the United States District Court of Columbia shall file the required Rule 109 certificates by September 23, 1996; and it is  

FURTHER ORDERED that subject to the Court's review of the Rule 109 certificates, the parties and intervenors shall appear for the previously scheduled hearing at 10:00 A.M. on September 30, 1996. The hearing will not be in Courtroom 11, as previously announced, but in Courtroom 17 on the sixth floor. The Court will decide the motions to intervene in advance of the hearing.  

SO ORDERED   /S/
PAUL L. FREIDMAN
United States District Judge  

Date 4/18/96

:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: 
 

FOR REFERENCE, HERE IS THE DOCKET SHEET ENTRY:     9/18/96 14 ORDER by Judge Paul L. Friedman: all corporate parties and

HyperLaw Note:
Rule 109 states:
"In all civil, agency, or criminal cases where a corporation is a party or intervenor, counsel of record for that party or intervenor shall file a certificate listing any parent, subsidiary or affiliate of that party or intervenor which, to the knowledge of counsel, has any outstanding securities in the hands of the public. Such certificate shall be filed at the time the party's first pleading is filed. <b>The purpose of this certificate is to enable the judges of this Court to determine the need for recusal. Counsel shall have the continuing obligation to advise the Court of any change.</b> The form of the certificate is: [form omitted]"
