What is the difference between a “lead document” and an “attachment” in court e-filing?
What is the difference between a "lead document" and an "attachment" in court e-filing?
Every submission to a court is a single "envelope" which contains one or more "filings."
Each filing has one filing code that describes the submission (e.g., Motion) and one lead document.
· Note: the filing user must also indicate the related party (the party on whose behalf the document is being submitted) and a filing description.
A filing can have one or more attachments, which are documents that supplement the lead document (e.g., exhibits to a motion, appendices to an appellant's brief).
Proposed orders should be submitted as a separate filing, preferably in the same envelope as its corresponding motion, and should include:
· the proposed order in PDF format as the lead document, and
· the proposed order in Microsoft Word format as an attachment
Note: each document should be submitted only once.For more information on e-filing in Indiana visit http://www.in.gov/judiciary/4313.htm
