Joining a Webinar by Phone or Other Connection

IMPORTANT NOTE:  If you are a case participant (attorney, party, witness, or other person who will actively participate in the hearing), it is strongly recommended that you join Zoom using the Zoom application rather than by a telephone connection.  If you must appear by telephone, the numbers posted for each judge are for the public and are listen-only, so you will need to contact the Courtroom Deputy (CRD) at least one business day before the hearing to request a Zoom invitation (which will be sent via email) in order to join the hearing as a case participant.

Courtesy/Chambers Copy Requirements

The submission of chambers copies is often required for electronically filed documents. Whereas the local rules state whether and how soon chambers copies must be submitted, judges’ individual standing orders sometimes create additional requirements and may differ from the local rules in other particulars. If they are not in agreement, these orders supersede the local rules.

View general information requirements for courtesy/chambers copies under the local rules.

The pertinent parts of Judge Armstrong’s standing orders are set forth below:

Courtesy copies are required for all filings that necessitate action by the Court, including motions, stipulations and other requests (along with supporting documents). Courtesy copies of proofs of service, notices of appearance, ADR certifications and similar administrative filings are not required.

Courtesy copies shall be clearly marked with the case number, judge’s initials (SBA), and the designation “Chambers Copy.” They shall be submitted to the Clerk’s Office within the time prescribed by the Local Rules.

Each individual document must be securely bound at the top or side. Exhibits must be tabbed. Additionally, voluminous filings (those exceeding two inches in thickness) must be submitted in tabbed and indexed binders. Voluminous filings also may be accompanied by a CD-ROM or USB drive where appropriate.
