Term Main definition
Electronic Signature

An electronic method or process that through the application of a security procedure allows a determination that the electronic signature at the time it was executed was all of the following:

  • Unique to the person using it.
  • Capable of verification.
  • Under the sole control of the person using it.
  • Linked to the electronic document to which it relates in a manner so that if the document is changed the electronic signature is invalidated.

An electronic signature is an electronic symbol, usually /s/, followed by a typed name. For example, “/s/ John Doe,” is an electronic signature. The /s/ symbol means that the individual whose typed name appears next to it or below it intended that the typed name be treated as an original signature. An electronic signature is attached to a paper filed with the Clerk of the Court by the self-represented litigant or a judge of court.
