How to File a Civil Action:
The Civil Cover Sheet
 

Each civil action must also include a completed civil cover sheet (JS 44) to assist the Clerk’s Office in processing your civil action.

All federal  district courts use a standard civil cover sheet (JS 44), which includes instructions on how to complete the form.

You can also contact or visit the Clerk’s Office for assistance in completing this form.  For additional information, review the Instructions for Filing a Civil Action on Your Own Behalf.
