In an effort to better assist members of the bar, the maximum file size allowed by the Court’s Electronic Case Filing system has been increased from 10 MB to 35 MB per upload. The increase in file size will save counsel of record and their staff members a great deal of effort by allowing larger yet fewer uploads per filing transaction.
As a reminder, The Court prefers and recommends that all PDF documents filed in CM/ECF be converted as opposed to scanned. Scanners should be used only for documents (such as exhibits and attachments) that cannot be produced with a word-processing program.
E-filing converted PDF documents allows judicial officers and their staff to access cited cases and statutes directly using an internal tool which converts them to a hyperlink. Not only are these documents text searchable and smaller in size, but they also allow the Court to easily adjust orders and other submissions as needed.
All documents created in a word processing format can be easily converted to PDF as opposed to scanned.
