In response to the COVID-19 public health emergency, the Seventh Circuit has suspended the requirement that parties provide paper copies of electronically filed briefs, appendices, and petitions for rehearing under Federal Rule of Appellate Procedure 30(a)(3) and Circuit Rules 31(b) and 40(b). The suspension does not apply to cases currently scheduled for oral argument, and the court may direct parties to provide paper copies in certain cases. Parties still must serve paper copies on pro se litigants.
The suspension is in effect until further order of the court. The Seventh Circuit's order is available here.
