New Local Rule in Civil Cases
Members should recall that effective January 1, 2015, when filing a new civil lawsuit (except in Small Claims) a notice regarding destruction of evidence must be supplied to the Clerk with sufficient copies for each defendant. Any new party brought into a case by way of a third-party claim must also be served with the notice. The Rule can be found starting on Page 26 of the local rules (PDF link) and a sample form is provided in Appendix B.
