Coronavirus and Federal Judge Mendoza’s Denial of Electronic Filing

During the Pandemic of coronavirus, Federal Judge Mendoza denied electronic filing to a pro se (self representing) citizens who are 70 and 75 years old with high risk of mortality. At the time of global pandemic by coronavirus and national emergency where people are dying, Judge Mendoza refused to grant access to the electroninc case filing which has zero exposure to corona virus. This denial is directly in conflict with the guidelines set forth by CDC, President Trump and Governor DeSantis in their effort to save lives. The plea of the doctor for electronic filing was blantatly denied without any concern for risking lives of Asian citizen who servves the community for their medical needs. You can see this directly by looking at the Court case 6:19-cv-01635.

The self representing people are not allowed to file the claim electronically in federal court in Orlando, and only way the court filings can be done is by hand delivery to the court house or going to the post office to drop in the mail box. Due to this administative policy, self representing people are put at disadvantage in many ways so ultimatley they can lose a case.

The self representing citizen has to go to drop the papers with white coat, mask and gloves to avoid unnecessary exposure. You can see this directly by looking at the Court case 6:19-cv-01635.
