Speedy Filing Box

The speedy-filing box is located at 333 Constitution Avenue just inside the 3rd Street entrance to the new annex of the U.S. Courthouse. The filing box is located to your right after you pass through security. A photo ID is required to enter the building. Please stamp the back of your documents "received" with the current date and time using the automated stamping device installed to the side of the drop box. Secure the documents you are filing in an envelope or with rubber bands before depositing them. Filing instructions are posted at the filing box and the U.S. Marshals on duty can provide general assistance.

Documents deposited in the speedy-filing box after-hours will be collected once a day, Monday through Friday, and filed as of the date stamped on the back. Documents deposited without the date and time stamp will be filed at the time they are collected by the deputy. If an emergency matter regarding a scheduled hearing is filed, you must notify the courtroom deputy at (202) 354-3106. For all other emergency filings, you must notify the case administrator handling the last digit of your case number.
