In certain instances, and pursuant to the operative General Order Re Mandatory Electronic Filing for Civil, printed courtesy copies must be submitted to the Court. Proof of electronic submission must be submitted with all courtesy copies. Regardless of the time of electronic filing, a printed courtesy copy is required for the following documents:

  • Any printed document required pursuant to a Standing or General Order.
  • Pleadings and motions (including attachments such as declarations and exhibits) of 26 pages or more.
  • Pleadings and motions that include points and authorities.
  • Demurrers.
  • Anti-SLAPP filings, pursuant to Code of Civil Procedure Section 425.16.
  • Motions for Summary Judgment/Adjudication.
  • Motions to Compel Further Discovery.
  • Opposition to an ex parte application.

Nothing in the General Order precludes a judicial officer from requesting a courtesy copy of additional documents. For many courtrooms, specific courtesy copy guidelines can be found on the Court’s website at
