    Question How to File a Motion in Superior Court

    My question involves business law in the state of: CA

    In general, what are the number of copies that need to be filed for motions? I have looked at the local rules of various counties and am confused as to what is the number. I know an original gets filed into the legal record. And i guess if i want to get returned stamped copy i submit a second copy. When i talk to court clerks i keep getting conflicting responses between 2 or 3 or more copies. The local rules are ambiguous. Is there a Code of Civil Procedure reference that clarifies number of copies?

    When in doubt, file the additional copy.

    Other than the original that gets put into the legal record, what are the other copies for? When i am told 2 copies, i am told the second copy gets returned to me. When i ask about why i am not receiving returned copy i am told the court needs 3 copies. It is not explained why the court needs the third copy. Aren't court officers charged with knowledge of the procedures of the court?

    Thank you.
