Judicial Council Soliciting Comments on Proposal for Electronic Submission of Appellate Briefs to Supreme Court

Parties to an appeal are currently required to serve the Supreme Court with four copies of the briefs they file in the Court of Appeal.  A proposed change to rule 8.212, California Rules of Court, would allow the parties to submit a single electronic copy to the Supreme Court instead.  Good idea, and the technical requirements in the proposed rule seem to make sense.

The California Judicial Council is seeking comments on the proposed rule change.  Go here for a link to the proposed changes, a link for the on-line submission of comments, and information for submitting comments by mail.  The deadline for submissions is July 13, 2007.
