Covid-19 Filing information
Effective March 16, 2020, and until further notice, the Teton County Clerk of District Court’s Office and Teton County District Court Judge Timothy C. Day encourage the use of fax/e-mail filing for time sensitive Teton County District Court case filings whenever possible. We welcome and encourage pleadings via mail.
Fax/email fees (usually $1 per page) are waived until further notice.
Rule 5(e) W.R.Cv.P.: “No documents shall be transmitted to the court by facsimile or electronic means for filing without prior telephonic notification to the clerk of court. Only under emergency circumstances shall documents be filed by electronic means (including but not limited to email) or facsimile transmission. Any paper filed by electronic means must be followed by an identical signed or otherwise duly executed original, or copy of any electronic transmission other than facsimile transmission..., mailed within 24 hours of the electronic transmission.” Please note: A call to the clerk at (307) 733-2533 is required to request permission for each electronic filing. This requirement will continue to apply unless otherwise indicated by the Clerk.
As of April 1, 2020 and until further notice, only limited original pleadings need to follow in the mail. The clerk will provide details when you call.
When making the required telephone call to the Clerk’s office:
State the case number, title of pleadings, and number of pages being filed.
When given staff permission to file electronically, please forward the pleadings only to the specific fax number or email address provided by the clerk.
Fax/email filings sent without a phone call, sent to individual staff email addresses, or sent to otherwise incorrect email addresses will not be processed.
Your consistent attention to the following details will best setup us all up for success:
Only include filings for ONE CASE NUMBER per email.
Write the CASE NUMBER in the email subject line.
Submit SEPARATE PDFS for each pleading.
Proposed Orders should also be submitted as a separate PDF.
Cover letters should also be submitted as a separate PDF.
When mailing original filings (to include original signatures) include a cover sheet stating: “This pleading/set of pleadings was fax/email filed on (insert date) during the fee waiver period.” This critical step will help us avoid duplicate docket entries and confusion.
Please contact our office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 733-2533 with any questions.
