Filing and service of all other documents.
(1) Filing of documents: All pleadings and briefs shall be filed with the board through the CMS unless a petitioner does not have the technological capacity to do so.
Filings shall be deemed filed upon actual receipt during office hours of 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. excluding Saturdays, Sundays, and legal holidays. Any transmission not completed before 5:00 p.m. will be deemed to be received on the following business day. The date and time indicated by the CMS shall be presumptive evidence of the date and time of receipt of transmission. All documents will be deemed filed with the board on the date filed through the CMS.
(2) Service: Parties shall serve copies of all filings on all other named parties by electronic mail on or before the date filed with the board, unless a party lacks technical capability. Service is accomplished when the document is transmitted electronically, or, by agreement among the parties or exception granted by the presiding officer, is postmarked or commercially sent by the required date.
(3) Filing and service requirements may be altered by the presiding officer, when filing through the CMS is unavailable or impossible, or in emergency situations, in which the governor declares a statewide emergency. Email or fax filings shall substitute for filing through the CMS in the event that filing through the CMS is unavailable or impossible, unless otherwise specified by the presiding officer.
