On Janury 30, 2008, the Daily Journal had a short article (subscription) about a document that sounds very handy for those of us practicing in the Central District of California, which just adopted mandatory e-filing rules for virtually all civil cases (see C.D. Cal. Gen. Order 08-02 (superseding Gen. Order 07-08)). Attorney Martin W. Anderson has made our lives easier by creating "The Unofficial E-Filing Manual for the United States District Court, Central District of California," available for free download at his site. According to the Daily Journal article, "The guide is loaded with tips about the ins and outs of civil e-filing in the Central District. It details the specific submission procedures for 30 unique types of civil filings, from complaints to proposed judgments." Thanks, Martin!

UPDATE: A couple of the links were broken in this post. Have fixed them, including the link to Gen. Order 07-08, which has been superseded by C.D. Cal. Gen. Order 08-02 (dated February 7, 2008). Thanks to the reader who emailed me about this problem.
