SPMGR 30 Electronic Filing (A)(1)(a) Judicial Signatures: Judicial officers may sign orders with a digital signature, as defined in GR 30. In addition, documents may be signed by judicial officers using an electronic form that contains an electronic copy of the judicial officer's signature so long as the form is saved only on a directory that is accessible only by the judicial officers and so long as the electronic signature is protected so that it cannot be electronically copied. The printed version of these documents shall constitute an original order and shall be placed in the court file. This rule may be amended or supplemented during the year by general order. (B)(5) Notices of Appearance may be filed electronically by attaching a Notice in Word or .pdf format to an email addressed to email@example.com. (D)(2)(D)(iii) Any document initiated by a law enforcement officer is presumed to have been signed when the officer uses his or her user ID and password to electronically submit the document to a court or prosecutor through the Statewide Electronic Collision & Traffic Online Records application, the Justice Information Network Data Exchange, or the local secured system "Xpediter" used by the County of Spokane and City of Spokane. Unless otherwise specified, the signature shall be presumed to have been made under penalty of perjury under the laws of the State of Washington and on the date and at the place set forth in the citation. (Adopted Sept. 1, 2011; amended effective June 23, 2011.)
