Idaho Rules for Electronic Filing and Service


Rule 13: Request for Correction; Rejected Filing: Relief

(a)   Rejected Documents. Documents that do not comply with this rule, or the requirements of the aforementioned Electronic Filing Guide or court policy, may be returned to the filer for correction. If the document is not corrected as requested within the time frame provided for in subsections (b) and (c) of this rule, the document will be deemed to have not been filed.

(b)   Request for correction. If a document submitted electronically for filing is not accepted, the electronic filing system will send notification to the filer that explains why the document was rejected or will describe an error or irregularity and request correction and resubmission by the filer.

(c)   Resubmission of rejected filing; relief. A filer who resubmits a document within 3 business days (excluding legal holidays) of the date of the request for correction under this section may request, as part of the resubmission, that the date of filing of the resubmitted document relate back to the date of submission of the original document to meet filing requirements. If the third day following request for correction is not a judicial day, then the filer may resubmit the filing with a request under this subsection on the next judicial day. A filer who resubmits a document under this subsection must copy the existing envelope and include in the "Comments to Court" field notification for an electronic resubmission the following words: "Resubmission of corrected filing, request filing relate back to ____________, the date of original submission."
