Unit 4: Unit 4: Civil Litigation and Legal Documents - Discussion Filing Documents Visit the U.S. Courts web site, identify the District, County, or Parish where you live and determine how documents may be filed with the court. Does the court allow electronic filing of documents? Provide the requirements, restrictions, etc. Also locate the local state trial court (County or Parish) and provide the local rules regarding the filing of complaints, answers, and other documents. From this and other experiences you have had with the filing process, how have computers and the Internet changed the preparation and filing of documents?

Electronic filing has really been gaining popularity and there are many rules and regulations that you have to follow. It can be quite handy when you want to file something last minute (not that any of us procrastinate right?!). The local rules are just as important as the state rules because you don't want to send in something for filing with the court and have it bounced back because it does not conform to the rules. Please remember to post on at least three different days over the course of the week, and respond to at least 4 of your classmates in addition to your main post. Be sure to check your spelling and use proper grammar as errors will affect your grade for the discussion board. Pam Respond Electronic Filing Prof Kroh 11/30/2011 6:37:30 PM Once you get to the US Courts page - search by city/state/zip. You may have to look under a link that says something like CM/ECF or PACER. For your state court, find the Rules of Civil Procedure and check the table of contents to find the rule dealing with the filing of pleadings (specifically complaints).

Respond lectronic Filing John Mathis 12/1/2011 9:32:02 PM The Wisconsin Eastern District Court requires all pleadings and other papers must be filed by electronic means unless exempted or otherwise ordered by the Court, which may make reasonable exemptions from the electronic filing requirement. Pleadings and other papers must be formatted for reproduction on 8 ½ by 11 inch paper. The text must be double-spaced, but quotations more than two lines long may be indented and single-spaced. Headings and footnotes may be single-spaced. Margins must be at least one inch on all four sides. Page numbers may be placed in the margins, but no text may appear there. The La Crosse County Circuit Court Rules provides pleadings and other papers that do not require a filing fee may be filed with the court by facsimile transmission.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
