Memoranda of Law (Briefs)
A. Memoranda of Law must be filed electronically in text-searchable PDF format (i.e., documents that have been electronically converted, not scanned) whenever reasonably possible.
B. Parties need no longer provide copies of authority found only on electronic databases such as Westlaw and Lexis or not reported in the West National Reporter System. Wherever reasonably possible, however, citations to such authorities should be hyper-linked to the reference in one or more electronic databases.
C. All exhibits or other material left with Chambers no longer than thirty (30) days after a ruling has been issued will be discarded without further notice. (This does not include original documents or exhibits filed with the Clerk of the Court.)
D. Except in exceptional cases, no pleadings are to be filed under seal. Accordingly, unless absolutely necessary, no attorney shall quote from or otherwise disclose material designated as confidential pursuant to a previously entered protective order in any document to be filed in court. If an attorney believes it is absolutely necessary to disclose such material in a brief or memorandum, before doing so the attorney shall file a motion with this court asking for permission to file such material under seal.
