NEW General Order No. 31. Amended Order regarding Deposit and Investment of Registry Funds

Changes to procedures and fees for registry funds invested with the Court become effective December 1, 2016.

  • To accommodate a few changes in the administration of registry funds, General Order No. 31 becomes effective on December 1, 2016. As specified in GO 31 paragraph IV (E), the disputed ownership funds provision will become effective when the Court Registry Investment System (CRIS), as administered by the Administrative Office of the United States Courts (AO), begins to accept Disputed Ownership Fund (DOF) deposits.
  • The Judicial Conference approved changes in the fee structure for registry funds that become effective December 1, 2016.  For more information regarding the fee structure refer to General Order No. 31, paragraph III.

The new procedures enable the Court to administer the tax administration requirements established by the Internal Revenue Service for registry funds through the CRIS investment mechanism.

Please contact Chris Gundayao at 415-268-2344 with any questions.
