E-Filing Case Related Questions
How do I set a hearing before the assigned Magistrate Judge when electronically filing a discovery motion?
During the process of electronically filing, the filer will receive a screen which sets the motion for hearing. The default hearing officer is the district judge, therefore the user will need to click on the drop down list of judges and manually select the assigned magistrate judge. Once selection is made the hearing will be set before the selected Magistrate Judge.
I tried to e-file a document but it says "format not recognized"—what am I doing wrong?
All documents must be submitted in Adobe PDF (portable document format) with an extension of ".pdf". Two common errors occur. First, a user thinks that he/she saved the document in PDF. The user then tries to file the WordPerfect version of the document; not the saved PDF version. Second, a user fails to indicate the full path name for the PDF file he/she wants to upload. Because the system could not find the file, it responded with the "format not recognized" message. The solution--provide the full path name when identifying the file (example: "c:\documents\motion.pdf") during the upload process.
