    Email filings, when permitted, should be restricted to a specific email address for each jurisdiction (preferably to be “as directed by each jurisdiction”), in order to avoid confusion, increased burden on clerical staff, and the substantial probability of filings being lost or misdirected. Court staff should not be expected or required to forward, redirect, or correct emailed documents that are improperly submitted. Other conditions on email filings, such as prohibiting email filings for any documents for which a filing fee is required, should also be imposed.
