Today, Judge Connolly issued four new standing orders. These orders include:
- A requirement to disclose third-party litigation funding arrangements on the docket;
- A requirement in diversity cases to disclose the name and citizenship of every individual and corporation with a direct or indirect interest in every party;
- An order expanding disclosure requirements under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 7.1 for non-governmental joint ventures, LLCs, partnerships, and LLPs;
- A requirement for the defendant in ANDA cases where there was a Paragraph IV certification to produce the ANDA when responding to the complaint;
The above are numbered only for reference below.
Each of these orders explicitly applies only in Chief Judge Connolly cases.
