Courtesy Copies

Print Guideline

A courtesy copy of all motions and briefs must be sent to the chambers via First-Class Mail the same day the document is e-filed, or hand-delivered not later than the next business day after the document is e-filed. The courtesy copy should consist of the actual e-filed document and contain the electronic file stamp on the top of each page. Motion papers may be bound in any manner other than a prong fastener. The Court will not accept documents loosely secured with a rubber band or binder clips. Exhibits must be labeled and may be printed on both sides of the paper. Relevant portions of exhibits must be highlighted.

Along with the courtesy copy, the filing party must include copies of the main cases and other authority that support its legal position(s). The filing party must highlight the relevant portion(s) of these authorities. Counsel are encouraged, but not required, to include these authorities in a separate binder with a table of contents.
