Electronic Briefs

The Eleventh District Court of Appeals recently revised Loc.R. 16(A), which now requires that an electronic version of the brief be submitted to the court in all cases. As the rule states, the brief must be submitted to the court as a read only document in Microsoft Word format, either utilizing version 2007 or 2010, in WordPerfect format, or a PDF file.

Furthermore, according to Loc.R. 16(A), unless good cause is shown as to why an electronic version of the brief cannot be provided to the court, the electronic format shall be emailed directly to by the party or attorney submitting the brief.

If you have any questions regarding this rule, please contact our Court Administrator, Shibani Sheth-Massacci, at or our Court Paralegal, Linda Ireland at

Thank you for your courtesy and cooperation in this matter.
