JUDGE'S COURTESY COPY - If the documents you are filing (main document plus all attachments) total 15 or more pages, you must submit a paper copy for the judge. Print the Notice of Electronic Filing receipt and affix it to the front of the paper copy of your document. The judge's courtesy copy should be received in the Clerk's Office within 48 hours of the electronic filing of the document.

LENGTHY DOCUMENT - Excessively large documents, especially those that were scanned, may exceed the system's capacity (30 megabytes). If you have a very large document (usually well over 100 pages in length), create and file a Notice of Filing Lengthy Document or Exhibit as a place holder for the document instead. Then, submit the original within 24 hours to the Clerk's Office for the official court record and serve copies of the lengthy document only in paper format. You must also submit a courtesy copy of the entire document for the judge (since it totals more than 15 pages).
