The Utah Judicial Council rule requiring electronic filing in civil and domestic cases will be in effect on Monday, April 1. On April 1 the district court will no longer accept paper documents for filing from attorneys in civil cases other than probate.
The Board of District Court Judges has decided that no grace period or other exceptions to the mandatory e-filing rule will be allowed. The rule will be strictly enforced on the effective date. On April 1, documents brought to the courthouse will not be accepted for filing. Documents left in a night dropbox or received in the mail that are time-stamped or postmarked after 11:59 p.m. on March 31 may be destroyed.
