UPDATE: Federal Court Requirement for PDF-A - ON HOLD

LawyerPDF understands that the Office of Court Administration is advising all federal courts that PDF-A format is NOT REQUIRED for filings, until further notice but may still be requested as the filing format.  The requirement has been implemented in certain districts (ie:Southern District - NY), but documents are not being validated for compliance.  I suspect that technical implementation issues are the reason for the postponement.

Please be certain to check with the specific federal court in which you are filing for confirmation.
