LR 5.4 Motions: Filing Notice & Motion

Filing of papers shall be with the clerk unless a particular judge has provided for filing in the judge’s chambers. The clerk shall maintain a list of the delivery requirements of each judge and post a copy in a public area of the clerk’s office.  


Where a motion is delivered to the clerk that does not comply with the scheduling requirements established by the judge pursuant to LR 78.1 or is scheduled before a judge who, pursuant to this rule, has directed that the motions are to be delivered to the minute clerk assigned to the judge or to the judge’s chambers, the clerk shall inform the person offering the motion of the correct procedure. If the person insists on delivering it to the clerk, the clerk shall accept it and attach to it a note indicating that the person delivering it was advised of the scheduling or delivery requirements.
