Supreme Court Now Seeking Electronic Copies of Briefs, Memos

The New Hampshire Supreme Court is now requesting (but not requiring) that a party filing a brief or memorandum of law submit an electronic copy on a computer-readable compact disc (CD). The CD should be filed along with the original document and the eight paper copies required by court rules.

The electronic copy should be in portable document format (PDF). The label of the CD should include the case name and number, and should identify the brief or memorandum being filed (e.g., plaintiff’s opening brief, defendant’s opposing brief, petitioner’s reply brief).

Supreme Court Clerk Eileen Fox said that while parties are not required to submit the electronic copies, they are encouraged to do so. The electronic copy should contain the entire brief, but need not contain documents that are not computer-generated by the party. Briefs or memos submitted on CD will be posted on a regular basis on the Judicial Branch website.

For details, contact the Supreme Court clerk’s office at 271-2646.

If you are in doubt about the status of any meeting, please call the Bar Center at 603-224-6942 before you head out.
