The emergency amendment to Rules 30(b), (d) and (f) provides that in cases without an electronic case file, a litigant must file eight paper copies and an electronic copy of the printed cases and exhibits. The temporary rule allowed the filing of only one paper copy of the printed case, and this proved to be insufficient for the needs of the Court.
The emergency amendment to Rule 30(a) requires the sequential numbering of the printed case to begin on the cover sheet. This will make the page references consistent with the electronic pagination.
The emergency amendment to Rule 30(c) clarifies that in cases with an electronic file, litigants may file a printed case, but are not required to do so.
These emergency amendments were promulgated without resort to the notice and comment procedures set forth in A.O. 11 since the prior amendments to Rules 30(b), (d) and (f) are set to expire on June 30, 2013, and all of the amendments are necessary to the continued effective functioning of the Court.
