It is our hope that these local rules will provide practitioners in our district with a clear statement of the Court's policies and procedures and that they will contribute to the improvement of administration of justice in our Court.

However, we remain open to suggestions and welcome comments you may have for improving our local rules. You may send them to us at: localrules@med.uscourts.gov.

Or by regular mail at:

Christa K. Berry, Clerk
United States District Court
156 Federal St
Portland, ME 04101

In addition, you may contact any member of the Local Rules committee (contact information provided in the link below) to discuss your suggestions or questions about the Local Rules.
