1. The caption must state the case name and number and the related document number
2. The body must state a description of the document and the reason for requesting it be withdrawn
If you have attached a wrong PDF image or have filed a document in the wrong case, you will need to file a Notice of Withdrawal to have the docket entry marked "Withdrawn".
These instructions assume you have already accessed and logged into CM/ECF (see How to Access CM/ECF).
