Each district court has previously been directed in Supreme Court Administrative Directive No. 2009-101 to adopt and use cover sheets in both civil and criminal cases.

These cover sheets are not to be filed, nor made a part of the case, electronically or in hard copy. The clerk of the court shall destroy each cover sheet within thirty days.
