The Northern District of Illinois has begun to allow electronic filing of non-sealed digital audio/video exhibits (MP4, MP3, MOV, etc.). The exhibits will be available for purchase and download via the Certified Copy Desk.
If you want to file a document:
- Go to the Northern District’s digital submission page and fill out the form;
- Upload the digital audio/video file(s) (note that it will not accept PDFs, presumably because they are neither audio nor video); and
- Click “submit.” when you are done.
Within 24 business hours, an entry will appear on the docket confirming the exhibit was received.
