    Regarding CJA 04-0403. I think the clerk’s signature or intitials should be digital too, when the clerk signs underneath the judge’s digital signature, because most courts are trying to go paperless, as we are.

    CJA 3-104: What needs to be clarified is whether the 60-day clock starts over after a hearing is held. If the clock starts over, once the parties submit the case for a decision, a judge can wait almost 2 months, then schedule a hearing for argument, and after argument, take the matter under advisement, restarting the clock for another 2 months.
