Registry Fund Deposits and Disbursements

Standing Order 16-1 governs the use of a new kind of registry fund:  Disputed Ownership Fund.   This fund is now available to accept Interpleader transactions. 
 
Disputed Ownership Fund for Interpleader Deposits
Events in CM/ECF have been created for handling deposits into and disbursements out of this fund: 
 
Interpleader Deposit--motion to deposit funds
Interpleader Disbursement--motion to disburse funds
 
Use these events for registry fund transactions in adversary actions involving interpleader funds from a third party with no interest in the funds--a party who will not be a potential recipient of the funds.  
 
Liquidity Fund for Non-Interpleader Deposits
We use a separate registry fund for other registry fund deposits: Liquidity Fund.   The following events are used for deposits into and disbursements out of this fund: 
 
Deposit Funds into Court Registry--motion to deposit funds
Generic Motion--used for motion to disburse funds from the Liquidity Fund
 
Use these events for registry fund transactions involving funds provided by a party claiming an interest in the funds--a party who is a potential recipient of the funds.
 
It is important to select the correct motion event.  Orders will also specify which registry fund is being used. 
 
Please contact the Clerk's Office if you have questions.
