The Delaware Chancery Court issued a clarification yesterday to lawyers in order to clarify that passwords for eFilings of pleadings and other submissions with the Court are only to be used by Delaware lawyers and shall not be "lent to" (my words) or shared with non-Delaware lawyers, nor shall non-Delaware lawyers be added to the "electronic service list" through which those who eFile documents with the court are sent notice of eFilings by other lawyers in the case.

Here is  the text of the short admonition that was emailed to Delaware lawyers yesterday. This, of course, is of great practical importance to any lawyer who serves as local counsel for the large number of out-of-state lawyers from around the country who practice in Chancery Court.
