TRUEFILING

TRUEFILING is mandatory in all divisions of the Fourth Appellate District. ADI's announcement includes information about registration, training resources, special document requirements, claims, and sealed documents. Instructions for serving ADI via TrueFiling are here.

As of September 1, 2017, petitions for review and related pre-review filings by lawyers in the California Supreme Court must be submitted via TrueFiling. The Supreme Court Rules Regarding Electronic Filing have just recently been modified. ADI's September 2017 news alert describes the changes. Follow-up to 9/5/17 alert: Supreme Court has clarified that bookmarking the first page of the Court of Appeal opinion suffices (no need to bookmark headings within opinion).

CCAP guide to bookmarking briefs is here.

EOT FORMS

News alert: Attorneys are urged to use Judicial Council forms for EOT requests and to fill them out correctly.

Post-alert note for including a proof of service: Have TrueFiling serve the EOT for you. Instructions attached. The extra charge for this service is compensable.
