In a submission for attorneys' fees, a party split its attached billing statement records in three segments to stay within the size limits of the Administrative Procedures
. But "[s]omehow one part was filed twice and the third part was not filed." Instead of supporting 133.9 hours the attachments supported 3.9 hours. The submitting party did not pick up on this until the opposing party noted it. The submitting party later explained: "[A]s a result of the electronic filing, and the inability to file one lengthy exhibit as one document, [the exhibit] as filed electronically only contained the first 30 pages of the 51 pages of the total billings . . . ."
The event illustrates the need for careful review of each attachment
as it is uploaded. The training classes suggest that as attachment proceeds, the user should right-click
the attachment to verify that it is the correct file. See page three of Civil Memoranda
training materials. Caution would also suggest that each filing be reviewed when the NEF is received.
