BLR 5005-9. Electronic Filing of Proof of Claim or Transfer of Claim.

(a) A Registered User may file a proof of claim or a transfer of claim electronically in accordance with these Rules and the Electronic Case Filing Procedures. BLR 3002-1 applies to an electronically filed proof of claim or transfer of a claim, except as otherwise provided by these Rules or the Electronic Case Procedures.

(b) An electronically filed proof of claim or transfer of claim shall be signed in accordance with BLR 5005-7(b). No person or entity shall cause or permit a proof of claim or transfer of claim to be filed electronically without the express authorization of the individual whose signature appears on the electronically filed document and the person or entity on whose behalf the document is being filed. When an individual creditor or employee or agent of any creditor who is a Registered User electronically files a proof of claim or a transfer of claim, that individual creditor, employee, or agent certifies (1) that he or she is authorized to file the proof of claim or transfer of claim by the entity on whose behalf the document is being filed; (2) the creditor is the same entity who is a Registered User; and (3) the individual whose signature is shown on the proof of claim or transfer of claim has authorized such signature and the filing of that document. Upon the electronic filing of a proof of claim or a transfer of claim, the signature in accordance with BLR 5005-7(b) shall constitute a signature for purposes of Bankruptcy Rule 9011, of 18 U.S.C. §§152 and 3571, and of other applicable law.
