Correction of a clerical error in United States District Court

Correction of a clerical error in United States District Court is the topic of this blog post.

A request for a correction of a clerical error in United States District Court is filed pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 60(a).

Grounds for requesting correction of a clerical error in United States District Court.

The grounds for filing a request for a correction of a clerical error in United States District Court are that the clerical error or errors constitute a clerical mistake or a mistake arising from oversight or omission that is causing the records of the Court to not accurately reflect the actual orders or judgments made.

A Rule 60(a) request for correction of a clerical error in United States District Court can be filed whenever the records of the Court reflect an error that was clerical or mechanical in nature.

Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 60(a) states that, “[t]he court may correct a clerical mistake or a mistake arising from oversight or omission whenever one is found in a judgment, order or other part of the record.  The court may do so on motion or on its own, with or without notice.”

A request for correction of a clerical error filed under Rule 60(a) differs from rule 60(b) motions as corrections pursuant to Civil Rule 60(a) have no time limit.

And a well known legal treatise has stated that the court is entitled to modify an order under Rule 60(a) if the error was mechanical in nature rather than the result of a deliberate choice and the modification reflects the intent of the bankruptcy court at the time of the hearing.

And the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has stated in published cases that relief under Civil Rule 60(a) is not limited to clerical mistakes committed only by the clerk, it also applies to any mistakes made by the court, any of the parties or even the jury.
