E. Deadlines. MiFile is available 24/7 to the user. A filing must be submitted by 11:59 p.m. to be considered filed for that business day. If a filing is submitted on a Saturday, Sunday or holiday, the filing will be considered filed the next business day. If there is an issue regarding the timing of the acceptance of your filing, please send a ticket to the Court's helpdesk (see Help below).

F. Formatting Names.

I. Confidential/Sealed Documents. The Court will not accept Confidential/Sealed documents unless ordered by the court. We cannot accept confidential/sealed documents in MiFile; all confidential/sealed documents must be brought to Wayne County Clerk’s Office.

J. Consolidated Cases. All pleadings filed in consolidated cases must be eFiled into each individual case.

K. Multiple Pleadings. Multiple filings can be submitted in one transaction also known as a “bundle”. A transaction can hold multiple lead documents and each lead document can have multiple connected documents. Each submitted document will have a timestamp reflecting the date and time the Clerk’s Office accepted the filing.

L. Out of State Attorney.

1. Motion. Local counsel files Motion for Admission Pro Hac Vice. (See MCR 8.126)

2. Order. Local counsel eFiles order granting admission of out of state attorney Pro Hac Vice.

3. “P” Number. Out-of-State Attorney sends email to helpdesk@3rdcc.org indicating he/she has been admitted Pro Hac Vice. The Court will assign an out-of-state attorney a temporary “P” number to be used to eFile documents in that case only. If attorney is admitted Pro Hac Vice on another case, the attorney must obtain a new number to be used as “P” number. The temporary “P” number is valid for only the case for which it was obtained.

4. Training. Once admitted Pro Hac Vice, attorney and any staff utilizing MiFile shall take the training provided before attempting to eFile documents. See Help below.

M. Intervening Party. When you file a motion and obtain an order allowing you to intervene, the court will add you to the case as an intervening party. Please see §V.H. for further instructions.

II. Self-Represented Litigants

A. Pleadings. Self-represented litigants must file their pleadings electronically.

As a self-represented litigant, you must add yourself as a service contact. You are responsible for maintaining this information and keeping it current. Failure to keep this information current will result in your not receiving notices from the court and eFiled materials.

B. Waiver of MiFile Fees. If you qualify for a fee waiver (MCR 2.002), you may be eligible for a waiver of the MiFile fees. To obtain a fee waiver, you must petition the Chief Judge (7th Floor, CAYMC), if appropriate. See IV. Commencement of Action G. Fee Waiver for further instructions.         

C. Waiver of MiFile filing requirements. A waiver of the mandatory eFiling requirement may be obtained by filing a motion with the Chief Judge, if appropriate. You must demonstrate that you do not have a computer, are unable to operate one, or do not have access to a public computer, i.e., library. If the waiver is granted, all pleadings will be filed with the County Clerk’s office. You must appear at the County Clerk’s office which will scan the documents to maintain the electronic case record. You must serve all pleadings in the manner prescribed in the Court Rules, including a proof of service.

III. Business Court

A. See Notice of Business Court Implementation

B. Case Type Code. Effective June 1, 2015, you must select case type code "CB" for all business or commercial disputes. Failure to use the "CB" case type code will result in either: 1) rejection of the complaint or 2) assignment to a civil judge instead of a business court judge which may result in the assessment of a fine upon reassignment.

MCR 2.112(O)(1)

D. All other pleadings are filed in the same manner as any other General Civil Cause of Action.

Change of Venue. If venue is changed to this court from another county and the complaint or other pleading qualifies for the Business Court pursuant to MCL 600.8031 and MCL 600.8035, the attorney responsible for paying the filing fee should prepare and email the Business Court Verification and Assignment Form referenced in C.1. to wcchangeofvenue@waynecounty.com.

Fee Waiver. A fee waiver shall be sought using the Fee Waiver form MC 20, which can be found at http://www.3rdcc.org/Documents/Civil/General//FeeWaiverRequest.pdf.  A waiver request cannot be applied to multiple cases involving the same party – a fee waiver is only valid for the case for which it was obtained.  Fees are only waived until judgment.  You must obtain additional fee waivers for postjudgment proceedings.

1.  Complete the fee waiver form and proceed to the Courtroom of the Chief Judge, 2 Woodward Ave., 701 CAYMC, Detroit, MI.  
   
2. Present the fee waiver to the Chief Judge’s courtroom clerk for review. 
   
3.  If the fee waiver is granted it will be signed by the Judge.  Once signed, the fee waiver shall be eFiled with your complaint or other first filing after receiving the waiver. If the waiver is not filed with the complaint (or other document) you will be charged to file the complaint (or other document). 
   
4.  First Filing.  The first time you file a document that would normally require payment of a fee you must file the fee waiver.  You must file the fee waiver and the complaint (or other document) as separate documents.  You must eFile the entire fee waiver using the eFiling description of “Fee Waiver Request & Order, Signed and Filed”. You shall eFile the complaint (or other document) utilizing a code that provides the fee is waived. For example:  Complaint Case Filing Fee – Waived - $0.00, Jury Demand Filed & Fee – WVD-$0.00, and Miscellaneous Motion, Filed – WVD - $0.00. This only applies if the filing would typically require a fee.

If you eFile the signed Fee Waiver with the complaint (or other document) instead of as a document separate from the complaint (or other document) your eFiling will be rejected.
   
5.  Subsequent filings.  The waiver should only be eFiled one time. Unless otherwise ordered by the court, the waiver will be valid through the date of judgement.
   
  H. Discovery Materials.  Unless a particular rule requires filing of discovery materials, requests, responses, depositions, and other discovery materials may not be filed with the court except: a) if discovery materials are to be used in connection with a motion, they must either be filed separately or be attached to the motion or an accompanying affidavit; b) if discovery materials are to be used at trial they must be made an exhibit pursuant to the court rules and c) the court orders discovery materials to be filed.


V. Motion Practice

A. General Procedure.

1. Filing Motion. To obtain a hearing on a motion, you must file the motion and an ePraecipe. Failure to file an ePraecipe may result in the motion not being heard.

This is a two-step process:

a. eFile your motion
b. File an ePraecipe. For praecipe:
i. Go to https://www.3rdcc.org/ePraecipe/ePraecipe.aspx
ii. Follow prompts

The ePraecipe will be accepted as filed, accepted with a new date, or rejected. It is highly recommended that you call the courtroom to obtain the next available date.

2. Judge’s copy. For Motions for Summary Disposition, you must deliver a Judge’s copy of the motion, response and reply to the courtroom. For all other motions, you should only deliver a judge’s copy to the courtroom if the motion/brief/attachments are 40 pages or more.

3. Proposed Orders. Do not eFile a proposed order separate from the motion before the motion hearing date. A proposed order filed separate from a motion prior to the hearing date will be rejected by the court. A proposed order attached to a motion as an exhibit cannot be signed by the judge but is for perusal only.

B. Motion for Summary Disposition.

1. Scheduling. Courtrooms vary on how they schedule Motions for Summary Disposition. Contact the individual courtroom for a date.
2. Judge’s Copy. Physical copy of motion, response and reply must be provided to the courtroom.
C. Emergency Motions (other than Temporary Restraining Order). When filing an Emergency Motion, it is good practice to call the courtroom and alert them of the filing.

D. Motion to Extend Summons.

1. Filing. The filing of a Motion to Extend Summons requires the eFiling of two lead documents:

a. The first lead document is the motion with all attachments. This document will be filed by the Clerk’s Office.
b. The second lead document is the order that is reviewed by the judge. File the order as the lead document and attach to it the motion and all other necessary documents (postal search, affidavits, etc.).
2. Rejection. If you fail to attach the motion, postal search, affidavit, etc., to the second lead document, your request will be denied/rejected.

3. Obtaining Extended/Second Summons. See IV. B. 2.

E. Ex-Parte Motions and Orders.

1. Filing. The filing of a Motion for Ex-Parte Relief requires the eFiling of two lead documents:

a. The first lead document is the motion with all attachments. This document will be filed by the Clerk’s Office.
b. The second lead document is the order that is reviewed by the judge. File the order as a lead document in the same bundle and add attachments which include the motion and all other necessary documents.
2. Rejection. If you fail to attach the motion, postal search, affidavit, etc., to the second lead document, your request will be denied/rejected.

F. Temporary Restraining Orders (TRO).

1. The filing of a TRO is a special filing and requires the filing of two lead documents:

a. The first lead document shall be the motion. This document will be filed by the Clerk’s office.
b. The second lead document shall be the proposed order. This order will be reviewed by the judge; attach to it the motion for TRO, the complaint and any other pleading that will assist the judge in deciding this matter.
2. The TRO eFiling should duplicate a paper filing in that you would not deliver to the Clerk the TRO without documentation. Attach to your proposed order the pleadings that the judge should review to decide your TRO request.

3. It is a good practice to call courtroom and alert them of the filing.

G. Motion for Reconsideration.

You must file the motion and an ePraecipe. You must file the ePraecipe even though you are not requesting a hearing on the motion. Failure to file an ePraecipe may result in the motion never being considered.

This is a two-step process:

1. eFile your motion.

2. File an ePraecipe. For praecipe:

a. Go to https://www.3rdcc.org/ePraecipe/ePraecipe.aspx
b. Follow prompts
c. Because no hearing is required, “enter the next business day as the Motion Date and a Motion Time of 9:00 AM”.

The ePraecipe will be accepted as filed or rejected. It is highly recommended that you inform the courtroom clerk that you have filed a motion for reconsideration.
H. Motion to Intervene. When you file the motion and obtain an order allowing you to intervene, the court will add you to the case as an intervening party.

1. File Motion. Follow general procedure regarding eFiling a motion located at §V.A. selecting Motion to Intervene - Fee PD $20.00 or Motion to Intervene - Fee WVD $0.00.
