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 Koh’s standing orders are set forth below:

All printed chambers copies must be double sided and must include the ECF header on each page.

All cases subject to E-filing requirements must submit a Chambers copy of all documents and electronically file all proposed orders. A printed chambers copy of any electronically filed document must be lodged with the Court the next court day following the day the documents were electronically filed. All proposed orders should be emailed in Microsoft Word format to: lhkpo@cand.uscourts.gov the same day.
