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


Electronic filing through the California courts’ TrueFiling system is mandatory in all three divisions of the Fourth Appellate District and in the California Supreme Court. 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)."


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.
