Building Access Rules/Restrictions:
Please note that all individuals entering the Rudman Courthouse/Cleveland Federal Building are required to produce identification ("100% ID"). Additionally, persons entering the facility will be required to place any coat, briefcase, bag or box in their possession on an x-ray machine belt and, when directed to do so, to proceed through a magnetometer. Persons may be subject to further screening using a hand-held metal detector security wand or other screening procedures depending upon national security alerts or other unusual circumstances. If a person has a medical condition that prevents him or her from passing through the magnetometer, court security personnel may employ alternative screening techniques.
Also note that federal law prohibits members of the public from possessing a firearm or other dangerous weapon in a federal building. Finally, the court's local rules prohibit members of the public from possessing cell phones, computers, cameras and other similar electronic devices unless otherwise authorized by LR 83.7 and persons attempting to bring such devices into the courthouse will be required to leave them with court security officers at the front entrance (note court security are not responsible for the loss or damage to any such electronic device left in their possession).
In-person filings should be made at the Clerk's Office. Mailed pleadings should be sent to the address above. There is also a 24-hour depository located at the south entrance of the Cleveland Building. When leaving pleadings, be sure to stamp the pleading, not just the envelope, with the date/time stamp. Pleadings left in the 24 hour depository are retrieved once daily, between 7:30 a.m. and 8:00 a.m.
