JUDGES’ COURTESY COPY POLICY

One "courtesy" or "chambers copy" of all dispositive motion papers, as defined in E.D. Mich. LR 7.1(e)(1)(A), (including responses and replies) and all accompanying exhibits must be submitted directly to the judge's chambers on paper. Any exhibits must be properly tabbed and all papers firmly bound, usually along the left margin ("book-style"). Good practice requires that in appropriate cases, relevant portions of lengthy documents be highlighted. A printed copy of the Notice of Electronic Filing must be attached to the front of the paper.

The chambers copy must be sent via first class mail the same day the document is e-filed, unless it relates to a court proceeding scheduled within the next five days or otherwise requires the immediate attention of the Court, in which case the chambers copy must be hand-delivered to chambers not later than the morning of the next business day after the document is e-filed.
