Delivery of Documents to the Clerk's Office


Briefs that are delivered to the police booth at the North Drive of the Supreme Court building before 2:00 p.m. on a day that the Court is open for business will be delivered to the Clerk’s Office that same day, provided that they are submitted in an open container.  To be considered an “open container,” the package containing the briefs may not be sealed or taped shut, and no envelopes or other containers within or attached to the package may be sealed or taped shut. Parties to merits cases are strongly encouraged to have briefs hand-delivered to the police booth at the North Drive of the Supreme Court building, rather than having those briefs delivered by U.S. mail or commercial carrier.
