     A. Any Person filing a Pleading or correspondence with the Court shall forthwith furnish copies to all Attorneys, Pro Se Parties appearing of record, and to all Persons Beneficially Interested, unless excused by the Court for good cause shown.  When an attorney has filed a limited appearance under Rule 14 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 20.A.5., no further service need be made upon that attorney.  All such Pleadings shall contain a statement of compliance.  This rule shall not apply to any Pleading for which orders of notice are issued and served upon the parties.
