Supreme Court TrueFiling: Consecutive pagination of opinion in petition for review, payment for express mail, and service on the Court of Appeal.

Update on pagination. In response to the projects' inquiries about numbering the Court of Appeal opinion, the California Supreme Court informed us that the Court is revisiting its electronic filing rules. We have asked the Court for more information on this item. In the event that mandatory filing goes into effect prior to any modifications to this rule, counsel will need to comply with the current filing requirements including consecutive numbering.

Consecutive pagination. Rule 8.74(b)(3) requires consecutive pagination of documents filed electronically.  The opinion attached to the petition for review is considered part of the document and must be paginated consecutively. If the opinion is separately paginated, the Supreme Court will reject both the electronic version of the petition for review and the two paper copies required to be submitted by Supreme Court local rule 5(a)(1).

Express mail. Supreme Court local rule 5(a)(2) provides that the two paper copies submitted along with the electronic filing must be "delivered personally, by express mail, or by other means reasonably calculated to ensure delivery to the court" within two business days of the electronic filing. ADI will recommend payment of the express mail charge for documents submitted to the Supreme Court in compliance with the rule.  Please explain the cost on your claim.

Serving the Court of Appeal. The process for serving the Court of Appeal with a copy of the petition for review remains unchanged. You will need to use the Court of Appeal's portal on TrueFiling and select File Only. This step is in addition to using the Supreme Court's portal to file the petition for review and serve other parties.
