It is our hope that the following Administrative Manual will
serve your needs in knowing how to file papers, documents and pleadings.
In 2008, the Local Rules Committee agreed that much of the content of our
Local Rules was administrative in nature and that to separate the actual
rules from the administrative guidance would be helpful. For one, it would
allow the Clerk's Office to make changes and updates more readily than
during the normal cycle for revision of Local Rules. It also becomes a
"text" of sorts for practicing attorneys and their assistants. We encourage
you and your staff to use the Administrative Manual to guide you in your
practice and welcome any ideas you might have for improving its content.
