E-Mailing Sealed Documents
The Central District of California is initiating a pilot project in which volunteer judges will be accepting submission of proposed orders to seal documents via e-mail. This initiative will go into effect on July 8, 2013, further expanding the electronic transmission of documents to the Court.
Counsel will be required to electronically file the Application to File Documents Under Seal and e-mail the proposed order and sealed documents to the judge's chambers e-mail address. Counsel should refer to the judge’s procedures and schedules for detailed instructions for submission of sealed documents.
