Bye Bye midnight filing deadlines in the Third Circuit. The United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit has adopted amendments ot its Local Appellate Rules to create a "uniform 5:00 p.m. E.T. deadline for filings (electronic and otherwise) and will become effective on July 1,"  See Public Notice - May 2, 2023.  Per the notice, "the Clerk’s Office will apply the 5:00 p.m. E.T. deadline to deadlines set on or after July 1, 2023, and also observe a grace period until December 31, 2023, for papers mistakenly filed after 5:00 p.m. E.T."
