or may be submitted electronically. Attorneys must efile documents as of the dates
marked as mandatory.
The implementation schedule for civil efiling is as follows:
Limited – voluntary November 13, 2018
Limited – mandatory December 3, 2018
Unlimited – voluntary December 3, 2018
Unlimited (non-complex) –mandatory January 2, 2019
