Joining a Webinar by Phone or Other Connection

IMPORTANT NOTE:  If you are a case participant (attorney, party, witness, or other person who will actively participate in the hearing), it is strongly recommended that you join Zoom using the Zoom application rather than by a telephone connection.  If you must appear by telephone, the numbers posted for each judge are for the public and are listen-only, so you will need to contact the Courtroom Deputy (CRD) at least one business day before the hearing to request a Zoom invitation (which will be sent via email) in order to join the hearing as a case participant.

Courtesy/Chambers Copy Requirements

The submission of chambers copies is often required for electronically filed documents. Whereas the local rules state whether and how soon chambers copies must be submitted, judges’ individual standing orders sometimes create additional requirements and may differ from the local rules in other particulars. If they are not in agreement, these orders supersede the local rules.

View general information requirements for courtesy/chambers copies under the local rules.

The pertinent parts of Magistrate Judge Corley’s standing orders are set forth below:

Under Civil Local Rule 5-1(b) parties must lodge an extra paper copy of any filing and mark it as a copy for “Chambers.” This includes chambers copies of Case Management Conference Statements. However, the parties do not need to submit chambers copies for stipulations, pro hac vice applications, and similar non-motion filings. Parties only need to submit chambers copies of other documents that (1) are related to a pending motion and/or discovery dispute and (2) exceed ten pages when combined. (For example, if a motion is 8 pages and a supportive declaration is 5 pages, chambers copies are required. However, if there is a 20-page stipulation and proposed order, no chambers copy is required.)

All chambers copies should be double-sided (when possible), three-hole punched along the left side of the page, and should bear the ECF filing “stamp” (case number, docket number, date, and ECF page number) along the top of the page. All exhibits shall be clearly delineated with labels along the right side. If the filing includes exhibits over two-inches thick, the parties shall place the chambers copy in a binder. In a case subject to electronic filing, chambers copies must be submitted by the close of the next court day following the day the papers are filed electronically.

Chambers copies should include all material — both redacted and unredacted — so that the chambers staff does not have to re-assemble the whole brief or declaration, although chambers copies should clearly delineate which portions are confidential (via highlighting). Chambers copies shall also bear the ECF filing “stamp” (case number, docket number, date, and ECF page number) along the top of the page.

The chambers copies shall be marked “Chambers Copy” and submitted to the Clerk’s Office, in an envelope marked with “Magistrate Judge Corley,” the case number, and “Chambers Copy.” Parties must submit chambers copies of administrative motions to seal and related filings.

Chambers copies with confidential materials will be handled like all other chambers copies of materials without special restriction, and will typically be recycled, not shredded. If the parties wish to dispose of documents filed under seal in some other way, they must expressly indicate as much in their sealing motion and make arrangements to pick up the documents upon disposition of the motion.

Any stipulation or proposed order in a case subject to e-filing should, in addition to being e-filed, be submitted by email to as a word processing attachment on the same day the document is e-filed. This email address should only be used for this stated purpose unless otherwise directed by the Court.
