Federal Court of Appeal

The Federal Court of Appeal, in a new Practice Notice “Electronic Service of Documents for the duration of the Suspension Period”, makes electronic service by email permissible in all cases and requires email addresses be added to all documents filed with the Federal Court of Appeal, with limited exceptions, while the, now indefinite, Suspension Period is in effect.

This Practice Notice effectively overrides Rule 141 for the Federal Court of Appeal, which had required a notice of consent to be filed by a party that was agreeable to electronic service.
