After selecting a case and filing category and type (and clicking Continue), a user must identify the party or parties the user represents in the appeal. A pro se filer must identify himself or herself at this stage of the process. Parties are identified in the Party Filer area, which shows a list of all the parties in a case. A pro se filer's name will appear in this area.
To select a filer, click the checkbox to the left of the Filer column. When a filer is selected, a checkmark appears in the checkbox, and the row is highlighted. In the example below, the filer Holder, Eric H., Jr. is selected.
