Business Records Filing Policy

If you intend to file a business records affidavit as a part of your litigation, this office asks that you limit the records attached to less than 100 pages. The parties should exchange the records in excess of 100 pages and simply file the business records affidavit in this office without the attachment. The reason that the District Clerk’s Office is asking that this be done is that the scanning and storage of such records consumes an enormous amount of time in this office.

As a consequence, it slows down the other office functions such as placing documents in files timely and issuing citations. The District Judges do not object to this policy as long as the opposing parties are served with copies of the records that go with the affidavit. This requires an agreement between the parties.
