§ 1.52   Subscription and verification.

   The original of all petitions, motions, pleadings, briefs, and other
   documents filed by any party represented by counsel shall be signed by
   at least one attorney of record in his individual name, whose address
   shall be stated. A party who is not represented by an attorney shall
   sign and verify the document and state his address. Either the original
   document, the electronic reproduction of such original document
   containing the facsimile signature of the attorney or represented
   party, or, in the case of matters in the Wireless Radio Services, an
   electronic filing via ULS is acceptable for filing. If a facsimile or
   electronic reproduction of such original document is filed, the
   signatory shall retain the original until the Commission's decision is
   final and no longer subject to judicial review. If pursuant to
   § 1.429(h) a document is filed electronically, a signature will be
   considered any symbol executed or adopted by the party with the intent
   that such symbol be a signature, including symbols formed by
   computer-generated electronic impulses. Except when otherwise
   specifically provided by rule or statute, documents signed by the
   attorney for a party need not be verified or accompanied by affidavit.
   The signature or electronic reproduction thereof by an attorney
   constitutes a certificate by him that he has read the document; that to
   the best of his knowledge, information, and belief there is good ground
   to support it; and that it is not interposed for delay. If the original
   of a document is not signed or is signed with intent to defeat the
   purpose of this section, or an electronic reproduction does not contain
   a facsimile signature, it may be stricken as sham and false, and the
   matter may proceed as though the document had not been filed. An
   attorney may be subjected to appropriate disciplinary action, pursuant
   to § 1.24, for a willful violation of this section or if scandalous or
   indecent matter is inserted.
