Courtesy Copies

Courtesy copies are required for: all motions noticed for presentment before Judge Ellis; all filings that total 50 pages or more including exhibits; pretrial orders (and the attendant evidentiary motions and jury instructions if separately filed); and all filings that include any attachments or exhibits that are not readable in their electronic format. Unless Judge Ellis orders otherwise, courtesy copies are not required for any filings that do not meet this description, including pleadings. When a courtesy copy is required, it should be delivered to the Courtroom Deputy, not to chambers, within 24 hours of the filing. The Court prefers courtesy copies to be double-sided and printed after a pleading is filed, with the CM/ECF header stamp on the document.  Filings with exhibits should include tabs.  Voluminous submissions should be bound for ease of use.
