RULES OF THE CIRCUIT COURT OF THE STATE OF NEW HAMPSHIRE -- DISTRICT DIVISION

GENERAL RULES

Rule 1.3-A.  Pleadings – copies to all parties.


       
(A) Copies of all pleadings filed and communications addressed to the Court shall be furnished forthwith to all other counsel or to the opposing party if appearing pro se.  When an attorney has filed a limited appearance under Rule 1.3.D.(2) on behalf of an opposing party, copies of pleadings filed and communications addressed to the Court shall be furnished both to the opposing party who is receiving the limited representation and to the limited representation attorney.  After the limited representation attorney files that attorney’s “withdrawal of limited appearance” form, as provided in Rule 1.3.I.(2), no further service need be made upon that attorney.  All such pleadings or communications shall contain a statement of compliance herewith.

      (B) In any case when all parties are represented by lawyers, all parties' counsel may agree that pleadings filed and communications addressed to the court may be furnished to all other counsel by email. An agreement may be filed with the court by stipulation. Such agreement shall list the email address(es) at which counsel agrees to be served. The email header shall include the caption of the case and its docket number. Pleadings and communications furnished in accordance with this rule shall be attached to the email in .PDF file format. Documents so furnished may have on their signature lines a copy of counsel's signature, a facsimile thereof, “/s/ [counsel's name]” as used in the federal ECF system, or similar notation indicating the document was signed.

(C) A no contact order in a domestic violence, stalking, or similar matter shall not be deemed to prevent either party from filing appearances, motions, and other appropriate pleadings, through the Court.  At the request of the party filing the pleading, the Court shall forward a copy of the pleading to the party or counsel on the other side of the case.  Furthermore, the no contact provisions shall not be deemed to prevent contact between counsel, when both parties are represented.
