RE: Order 19, N.D.Sup.Ct.Admin.O. - Return of Scanned Documents; Order 19 Addendum - Document Return Request Form
The Odessey® Operations Group has requested that the Committee review a proposed administrative order and addendum relating to the return of the scanned documents. The proposed order is an attempt to implement one of the principles of the new district court e-filing system: that - except in the case of wills - the courts will no longer retain paper documents in court files. Under the order, parties may submit a form requesting that paper documents submitted for scanning or as a trial exhibit be returned. Otherwise, the documents will be destroyed.
The proposed order and addendum are attached.
