At the conclusion of all cases, any exhibits marked at trial shall be accounted for and assembled by the parties or their counsel, presented to the Clerk and Master’s Office, and scanned into the Clerk and Master’s electronic case management system.

All original trial exhibits, including any non-paper exhibits and exhibits larger than 8-1/2 x 11 inches, shall be retained by the counsel for the party who introduced the exhibit.

As needed, counsel shall reduce any exhibit larger than 8-1/2 x 11 inches to a size which the Clerk of the Appellate Court will receive. 

These procedures further apply to depositions which are not marked as exhibits but only made a part of the technical record.
