§ 2-207. Electronically filing original documents.

   (A) Courts shall accept an accurate copy (duplicate) of an original, certified, or authenticated paper document through electronic filing.

   (B) For cases where a statute requires the original, certified, or authenticated paper document to be filed with the clerk, the filer shall make the duplicate PDF of the original, certified, or authenticated paper document as outlined in subsection (C) below, and submit the original, certified, or authenticated paper document to the clerk within the time prescribed by statute.

   (C) The filer shall scan the original, certified, or authenticated paper document into a PDF and electronically file the scanned PDF duplicate along with the relevant pleadings. The filer shall include a certificate with the scanned PDF duplicate stating the filer has or had physical possession of the original, certified, or authenticated paper document, and will separately deliver the original, certified, or authenticated paper document to the clerk of the court within the time prescribed by statute. See Appendix 1. If a statute allows a certification to be included in the application commencing the action, that certification satisfies the requirements of this rule.

   (D) Upon receipt of the original, certified, or authenticated paper document, the clerk of the court shall make an entry in JUSTICE or SCCALES noting receipt of the original, certified, or authenticated paper document. If the clerk receives the original, certified, or authenticated paper document before commencement of the case, the clerk shall make the JUSTICE or SCCALES entry for the paper document noting the actual date of receipt of the original, certified, or authenticated paper document upon receipt of the duplicate electronic document.

   (E) The clerk shall hold the original, certified, or authenticated paper document in a secure location for as long as required by the records retention schedule, other applicable statute, or court order.

   (F) Any person may request, and shall be granted permission to inspect the original, certified, or authenticated paper document in the office of the clerk of the court.
