Rule 7.26. Serving orders and other papers; courtesy copies for the court.

  • (a) If service of an order or other paper is to be made on a party represented by an attorney, the service must be made on the attorney unless service on the party is ordered by the court. Service on the attorney or on a party must be made by:

    (1) delivering a copy or by mailing it to the last known address; or

    (2) if no address is known, by leaving it with the clerk of the court; or

    (3) facsimile transmission; or

    (4) electronic transmission through the Court’s electronic filing system if the system provides for electronic service.

    (b) Delivery of a copy within this rule means:

    (1) by handing it to the attorney or to the party; or

    (2) by leaving it at the attorney’s or party’s office with a clerk or other person in charge thereof; or

    (3) if the office is closed or the person to be served has no office, by leaving it at the attorney’s or party’s dwelling house or usual place of abode with some person of suitable age and discretion residing therein; or

    (4) by telephonic facsimile communication device if the attorney maintains such a device at the attorney’s office and the device is operating at the time service is made; or

    (5) by means of electronic mail when the attorney or party has provided the e-mail address to the court’s electronic filing system for that case; or

    (6) by United States mail.

    (c) Proof of service may be made by:

    (1) certificate of an attorney or of the attorney’s employee; or

    (2) by written admission, affidavit, or other proof satisfactory to the court.

    (3) When service is made by facsimile communication and the original order or other paper is filed with the clerk of the court, a copy of a Transmit Confirmation Report or comparable evidence of service must be attached to or included within the filed document. Service by fax after 5:00 p.m. will be deemed delivered on the next judicial day.

    (4) When service is made by the court’s electronic filing system by e-mail, the e-mail will contain a link to the file stamped document. This e-mail will be sent to the e-mail address of each party being served. All names and e-mail addresses will be listed in the body of the e-mail.

    (d) The court administrator shall maintain suitable boxes in an appropriate location for each department of the court in which courtesy copies of motions, affidavits, points and authorities, or other papers may be deposited. Attorneys are requested to leave courtesy copies of any paper filed within 5 days of a hearing at which the paper may be considered. The boxes must also be used to deliver courtesy copies of any other filed material which a party wishes the court to receive in advance of a trial or hearing. Courtesy copies must indicate the date of any hearing to which they pertain.
