Code of Judicial Administration – Comment Period Closed July 17, 2021
CJA04-0403. Electronic signature and signature stamp use (AMEND). New Utah Rules of Civil Procedure 7A and 7B, effective May 1, 2021, replaced the order to show cause process with new “motion to enforce” procedures. Similar to the OSC process, a moving party files an ex parte motion and the court issues an order. The rule amendment allows clerks and judicial assistants to use, with prior approval, an electronic signature or signature stamp to process motions to enforce.
