Except in civil prisoner cases, a party must seek leave of court to permit the non-electronic filing of exhibits that are not convertible to PDF format (e.g., videos, audio files, etc.) and must be filed on a CD or other physical medium. If leave is granted, the Court will only accept video or audio files in the following file formats: .avi, .mp3, .mp4, .mpeg, .wma, .wav, and .wmv.
If you have a physical exhibit, create and file a Notice of Filing of Physical Exhibit. This notice serves as a placeholder for the exhibit that cannot be electronically filed. Within 24 hours (not counting intervening weekends and legal holidays) you must file and serve the exhibit in physical format along with:
• a traditional Certificate of Service
• a paper copy of the Notice of Filing of Physical Exhibit
• a paper copy of the Notice of Electronic Filing (NEF)
In addition, the Clerk’s Office must receive the original of any exhibit that cannot be electronically filed in the system. This version will be used as the official court record. The copy for the Clerk’s Office is in addition to any courtesy copy which you are required to provide to chambers.
