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.

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).
