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 Judge Gilliam’s standing orders are set forth below:

Civil Standing Order

Counsel shall submit two courtesy copies of all filings totaling 10 pages or more. Courtesy copies shall include substantive briefs and associated declarations, but shall not include other documents such as exhibits and requests for judicial notice.

Courtesy copies of certificates and proofs of service, notices of appearance, motions to appear by telephone, certificates of interested parties, ADR certifications and similar administrative filings should not be submitted.

All courtesy copies must be double-sided, three-hole punched at the left margin, and marked with the ECF stamp (case number, document number, date, and page number) on the top of each page. These printed copies shall be marked “Chambers Copy – Do Not File” and shall be in an envelope clearly labeled with Judge Gilliam’s name and the case number.
