Pro Se Filing Notice Re: Copies and Mailing

United States District Court

Southern District of Iowa




Effective January 1, 2011, we will stop making free copies of prisoner filings and mailing them back to you at court expense. This has been an extra service provided for your convenience until now, but constraints in our budget and staff time prompt this change.


If you want a complete copy you must send an extra copy (either handwritten or machine copied) with your filing, plus a self-addressed stamped envelope with the proper amount of postage affixed. If both of these are included we will be glad to stamp the copy and return it in your envelope.


John Courter

Clerk of Court
