  §  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. Pleadings,
   petitions, and other documents related to licensing matters in the
   Wireless Radio Services shall be signed by at least one attorney of
   record in his individual name or by the party who is not represented by
   an attorney and shall include his email and physical mailing 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 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
