California Court of Appeal – Second Appellate District: New Rule Change

Effective October 6, 2014, the Second Appellate District will now take electronic filings of briefs. The electronic filing will now be deemed the “original” and considered filed as of the date of the e-filing. This means that a brief is deemed timely filed if e-filed anytime before midnight, as opposed to before the closing hour of the clerk’s office.

If a party files with paper copies and elects not to e-file, then the mailing rule of CRC 8.25 still applies.

Please note that this new rule does not apply to writ petitions. Original proceedings remain subject to the prior e-submission rules.

For more information on e-filing, please visit the court website: California Court of Appeal – Second Appellate District.
