Courtesy Copy Delivery
Delivering courtesy copies with the One Legal contractor network
What is courtesy copy delivery?
While many courts have transitioned to electronic filing, some judges and departments still require a printed copy of every court filing. Known as a courtesy copy, judge’s copy, or chambers copy, this is an exact copy of the filed document that is to be physically delivered to the same courthouse into which it was filed.
This process can also be referred to as “lodging” documents with the court.
What does a contractor do?
When working courtesy copy delivery jobs, a contractor will receive legal documents, print them, and collate them according to the local court rules (e.g., adding tags and section dividers where required).
Once prepared, the contractor will delivery the documents to the appropriate department or judges’ chambers at the courthouse. Courtesy copies are often time-sensitive and need to be printed and delivered within 24-48 hours of being received.
