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 Gonzalez Rogers’ standing orders are set forth below:

Standing Order in Civil Cases

A chambers copy of all documents filed, whether electronically filed or manually filed at the Clerk’s Office, shall be submitted to the Clerk’s Office in an envelope clearly marked with the case number and “YGR Chambers Copy” for receipt by no later than 12:00 noon the second business day after the document is filed. Submission by overnight delivery such as Federal Express or UPS is sufficient.

  1.  All chambers copies must be 3-hole punched in the left margin in a manner suitable for placement in a 3-ring binder.
  2. Chambers copies must include tabs between exhibits and must fasten or attach pages of individual documents together so as to distinguish between separate documents. Do not use bottom tabs as they do not work well in binders.
  3. Chambers copies in summary judgment motions: Chambers copies of all summary judgment motions and oppositions (including the brief, separate statement, declarations, exhibits, and other supporting documents) are required to be provided by the filing party in a 3-ring binder or binders with tabs separating documents. Submitting chambers copies of the reply documents in a binder is optional. This requirement does not apply to habeas corpus petitions or summary judgment motions in ERISA or Social Security cases.
  4. Chambers copies in administrative motions to seal: As noted in paragraph 11 below, parties shall provide chambers copies of the unredacted documents with proposed redacted material highlighted only. Parties shall not submit chambers copies of the redacted versions of documents they seek to seal.
  5. Chambers copies submitted without meeting the above requirements may be rejected, and the party may be required to re-submit.
  6. In motions involving voluminous citations to evidence or records, parties are encouraged to submit chambers copies of their briefing in an electronic format with hyperlinks to the evidence on flash drives or other removable media. Parties may request to submit such electronic copies in lieu of paper chambers copies.

Standing Order re: Pretrial Instructions in Civil Cases

TRIAL READINESS FILINGS AND BINDER and PROPOSED ORDER THEREON:

The parties shall file each of the documents listed below and deliver to chambers two copies of a JOINT TRIAL READINESS BINDER. To provide the Court with sufficient time to prepare, the binder of documents is due by noon no less than seven (7) days prior to the Pretrial Conference. The Joint Trial Readiness Binders shall contain copies of filed documents with the ECF header reflecting the item’s docket number and filing date.

It is the responsibility of the parties to provide two copies of revised or updated trial documents to insert into the Court’s Trial Readiness Binders. The parties shall provide a labeled tab to identify the document(s) being added to the binder. The parties may also provide updated indexes for the Court, if an index was provided with the original binders.

MOTIONS IN LIMINE

Chambers copies shall be provided in a separate binder entitled MOTIONS IN LIMINE and collated with the opposition papers following the motion papers. Said binder shall be delivered no later than noon, seven (7) days prior to the Pretrial Conference. The binder shall include copies of the motions and oppositions with the ECF header reflecting the item’s docket number and filing date.

Standing Order in Criminal Cases

Chambers Copies of Motions and Trial-Related Filings. Unless otherwise specifically ordered, a chambers copy of all documents filed, whether electronically filed or manually filed at the Clerk’s Office, shall be submitted to the Clerk’s Office in an envelope clearly marked with the case number and “YGR Chambers Copy” for receipt no later than 12 noon the second business day after the document is filed. Submission by overnight delivery such as Federal Express or UPS is sufficient.

  1. All chambers copies must be 3-hole punched in the left margin in a manner suitable for placement in a 3-ring binder.
  2. Chambers copies must include tabs between exhibits and must fasten or attach pages of individual documents together so as to distinguish between separate documents. Please do not use bottom tabs as they do not work well in binders.
  3. Chambers copies submitted without meeting the above requirements may be rejected, and the party may be required to re-submit.
