Bookmarking Your Exhibits for eFiling in Orange County Superior Court
California Rule of Court 3.1110(f) specifies that each exhibit must be separated by "hard or plastic tabs..." By inference then, documents filed electronically must have virtual tabs, i.e. bookmarks.
Orange County Superior Court's memorandum of January 14, 2011, specifies that "effective March 1, 2011, all electronically filed law and motion documents must have all exhibits bookmarked."
Many of you have already downloaded our guide for creating bookmarks in Adobe Acrobat 7.0. For those of you utilizing Acrobat 8. 0 or 9.0, I've found a great video presentation for bookmarking in 9.0. (Note: 8.0 and 9.0 function similarly).
Click on the image below and you will be directed to this Adobe presentation.
Other things to be aware of:
- You will need Adobe Acrobat in order to bookmark. Adobe Reader does not have the necessary functionality.
- Only bookmark the first page of the exhibit, the exhibit tab, or the exhibit tab placeholder itself.
- Label it just like you would a paper exhibit tab (e.g. "Exhibit A", "Exhibit B", etc.).
- Do not submit your exhibits separately; they should be attached to the document just like they would be in the paper world.
