Speedy Trial Plan

Our Court's Speedy Trial Plan was adopted on May 22, 2013.

How to become admitted as an attorney in our Court...

Attorneys must be admitted to practice before the United States District Court for the District of Wyoming in order to appear before the court in any case or gain access to the ECF filing system for this District. Attorneys seeking regular admission now apply for admission and upload the appropriate petition through the PACER website.

Petition for Admission to Plead and Practice
(Local Rule 84.2(a))

Attorneys may be admitted by Petition if they are admitted and in good standing with the Wyoming Supreme Court. Once admitted by Petition and payment of the fee is received, the attorney may appear in any case in the district by filing a Notice of Appearance in ECF. Attorneys admitted by petition have full admission status. The fee for this admission is Two Hundred Thirty-eight Dollars ($238.00). A Certificate of Admission will be mailed to you after your petition is processed and your payment is received. E-filing for this Court will be automatically activated.
