All papers filed in this Court must be served on the other parties in the case. See
25. The PDF version of a document must be e-mailed to a party represented by counsel and to a party not represented by counsel if the pro se party has chosen to submit documents in PDF.
All such papers presented for filing must include an acknowledgment of service by the person(s) served or proof of service by the person who made the service.
The acknowledgment or proof must be in the form of a certified statement of the
date and manner of service, the name of each person served, and the mail
address, email address, facsimile number, or place of delivery used for service. Proof of service may appear on or be affixed to the papers filed. An acknowledgment and proof of service form
are available on the Court's
website. If, however, a party is filing a document electronically with the Court in accordance with LR 25.1, no separate proof of service is necessary. See
A pro se litigant who does not submit documents in PDF must be served with hard copies of
