All pleadings must be filed in the clerk's office between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday with the exception of complaints which may prescribe and those requiring immediate judicial intervention, for example, temporary restraining orders, vessel seizures, etc. Any other pleading filed after that time shall be considered as being filed on the next business day.

If it will be necessary to file a document after hours, call the clerk's office during regular business hours and ask to speak to the "duty" deputy clerk.
