Parties who have received a motion instruction letter or Jurisdictional Inquiry letter from the Clerk’s Office should use this Companion Filing Upload Portal to submit motion and opposing papers and Rule 500.10 Jurisdictional Responses.

Technical specifications and instructions for submission have been provided to parties, and can be accessed here.

This Portal is for uploading companion digital submissions of motions and Rule 500.10 Jurisdictional Responses only.
