UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS FOR THE FOURTH CIRCUIT
DOCKETING STATEMENT--CRIMINAL CASES
Directions: Counsel must make a docketing statement (criminal) entry in CM/ECF within 14
days of filing a notice of appeal or cross appeal, or within the due date set by the clerk’s
docketing notice, whichever is later. File with the entry the (1) docketing statement form and any
extended answers and (2) any transcript order form. Counsel who filed the notice of appeal is
responsible for filing the docketing statement even if different counsel will handle the appeal. In
criminal cases, counsel who represented the defendant below must continue on appeal unless the
court of appeals grants a motion to withdraw. Appellants proceeding pro se are not required to
file a docketing statement. Opposing counsel may file objections to the docketing statement
within 10 days of service using the ECF event-docketing statement objection/correction.
