New Policy Re: Courtesy Copies and Binders

04/08/2014

Please take notice that, effective July 1, 2014, the Western District of Washington will no longer be accepting courtesy copies filed in 3-ring binders.  If a courtesy copy is submitted in a 3-ring binder after that date, the binder will be returned to the person filing the courtesy copy.
        After 7/1/14, all courtesy copies must be

  • 3-hole punched
  • Tabbed
  • Bound by rubber bands or clips

This policy does not apply to the submission of trial exhibits.  Parties should contact each chambers and ask how that chambers wishes their trial exhibits to be packaged.
