Hear from the experts what you need to know about creating, filing and presenting your litigation product. Topics include:
- Sanctions judges have imposed for poorly formatted, constructed, compiled, or bound submissions;
- Reasons to convert-to-PDF, rather than print-to-PDF, better than scan-to-PDF;
- Hidden properties in word documents that transfer over to the ECF/NYSCEF filed PDF documents, including author and file name (so don’t name it in word “document stupid judge made me file” — or do consider checking adversary’s);
- PDF bookmarking, and new possibilities of filing combined document with exhibits bookmarked;
- Levels of DPI (dots per inch) resolution to have high quality product & meet minimum standards for efiling, including compensating for degradation caused by OCR (text readable) conversion;
- Techniques for re-posting prior efiled documents without obscuring filing header with multiple superimposed headers;
- PDF text highlighting that refuses to print the highlighting & how to overcome;
- Problematic decapitating of top NYSCEF headers when printing “actual size” versus “fit”;
- Work-around for documents resistant to PDF/A conversion;
- Editing text in PDFs (helpful for last-minute corrections);
And MORE. Attendees will also have the opportunity to ask questions of the experts and address any issues they may have.
