(1st Reminder - 2/13/17; 2nd Reminder - 2/22/17) Pursuant to Local Civil Rule 83.2.2(D), every attorney admitted to practice before the Eastern District of Louisiana must pay an annual fee which is collected every third year. Commencing January 1, 2017, the Court began collection of triennial dues of $45.00 ($15.00 per year for 2017, 2018 and 2019) from all attorneys admitted to this Court's bar. All attorneys admitted to the bar of this Court will be required to pay their triennial attorney's dues electronically through their ECF account no later than March 1, 2017. Instructions on electronic payment of dues will be displayed when the attorney logs into CM/ECF using his or her ECF account. Pursuant to Local Civil Rule 83.2.2 (D), any attorney who fails to pay the $45.00 triennial dues on-line will be summarily suspended after notice has been provided to the attorney's last registered address at least 35 days prior to the suspension. No further notice of triennial dues collection will be provided to attorneys who are currently suspended for failing to pay triennial dues in 2014. Any attorney suspended pursuant to Local Rule 83.2.2 (D)(2) may be reinstated upon payment of triennial dues.
