(a) Papers eligible for filing. Except as otherwise provided in Rule 2.02, all papers and pleadings which conform to these rules may be filed in the drop box located in the courthouse, with the exception of filings which require the payment of filing fees. Filings which require the payment of filing fees must be made directly with the County Clerk’s Office.
(b) Procedure. Papers may be filed in the drop box during all hours the courthouse is open. Papers must be date and time stamped prior to being placed in the drop box. Drop box filings shall be deemed filed as of the date and time noted on the paper or pleading. If a drop box filing has not been date and time stamped, the paper or pleading shall be deemed filed at the time it is date and time stamped by the County Clerk.
