There is nationwide scam that is targeting Judiciary suppliers with fraudulent purchase orders. By impersonating Judiciary employees with purchasing authority, scammers will email businesses fraudulent purchase orders for products. The purchase order, which can look like an official Judiciary document, tells the business to deliver products such as computer equipment to an address that is unaffiliated with the Judiciary. The business never receives payment and may not be able to retrieve the delivered products. While this illegal activity cannot be prevented, the Judiciary wants to promote awareness and communicate the necessity of verifying purchase orders. Businesses should be cautious of any purchase order submitted by email for products. If a business receives an emailed purchase order from the Judiciary, first verify that the email was sent from an @uscourts.gov email account and that the shipping address goes to a Judiciary property. Use the Federal Court Finder (https://www.uscourts.gov/federal-court-finder) to confirm the address. If you encounter a suspicious purchase order, forward the email and purchase order to Robin_Trevillian@ao.uscourts.gov in the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts.

The Court has issued a general order regarding notice and transcript procedures for criminal cases concerning a child under 18 U.S.C. § 3509(d). The order requires a party to file a notice when a case concerns a child victim or witness. The order also instructs that transcripts filed in criminal cases that involve a child will initially be filed under seal so that redactions may be made to comply with 18 U.S.C. § 3509(d). Parties are instructed to follow the procedures in LR 5.5 to request redactions; the Statement of Redaction form has been updated to reflect this change in practice. If no redactions are required, parties must file a notice stating such. Please see the order for more information.
