|RE:||Use of Rubber Signature Stamps|
LADIES AND GENTLEMEN
It has come to my attention that some judges are using signature stamps to sign orders. This practice is not appropriate and should be discontinued. Signature stamps are subject to being used by unauthorized persons and the validity of any order signed with a stamp can be questioned. Judges should personally sign all orders.
