If the disposition is not available in an electronic database, a copy of any unpublished opinion cited in any document being submitted to the court must be attached to each copy of the document, as required by FED. R. APP. P. 32.1(b).

The amended rule, which went into effect November 28, 2022, was approved by the court following a public comment period that ended on October 21, 2022.
