We have recently had issues in Court where Judge Gilbert A. Smith has had difficulty with hearings due to no hardcopy provided in advance. Per his instructions found on the 12th Circuit website:
Courtesy Copies: Copies of pleadings, memoranda of law, case law, notices of hearing, etc. must be received by the Court at least five (5) working days prior to the hearing. Please mail or hand deliver; faxed and e-mailed copies will not be accepted. If the courtesy copies have not been provided in a timely manner, the hearing may be cancelled without notice and will need to be rescheduled.
