U.S. District Court Fee Schedule Revised

In a recent notice, the filing fee for civil actions in the U.S. District Court is increased to $400, and some other minor fee changes have been made to Appendix A of the Local Court Rules.

"Effective May 1, 2013, all federal district courts will begin charging a $50 administrative
fee for filing a civil action in a district court, in addition to the $350 filing fee, thereby increasing
the total filing fee to $400.00. The administrative fee does not apply to applications for a writ of
habeas corpus or to persons granted in forma pauperis status under 28 U.S.C. § 1915."
