CHEAT SHEET

A quick reference guide to service addresses in the Fourth District, both hard copy and email. 

TRUEFILING

Electronic filing through the California courts’ TrueFiling system is mandatory in all three divisions of the Fourth Appellate District. In the California Supreme Court, it is mandatory for petitions for review and pre-OSC habeas corpus petitions and related filings. CCAP guide to bookmarking briefs is here.

Supreme Court’s acceptance of petition for review via TrueFiling constitutes service of the petition on the Court of Appeal under California Rules of Court, rule 8.500(f)(1). The Supreme Court says the Court of Appeal must still be listed on the proof of service. For example, "Court of Appeal (per Supreme Court TrueFiling policy)."

EOT FORMS

News alert: Attorneys are urged to use Judicial Council forms for EOT requests and to fill them out correctly. Have TrueFiling serve the EOT for you. The fee is reimbursable.
