The court shall accept facsimile transmission of any document not listed in subpart 2. Filing shall be deemed complete at the time that the facsimile transmission is received by the court, provided that transmissions received after the close of business at 4:30 p.m. shall be deemed received on the next day that the court is open for business. The filed facsimile will have the same force and effect as the original. Only facsimile transmission equipment that satisfies the published criteria of the Minnesota Supreme Court may be used for filing in accordance with this part.
Within five days after the court has received the transmission, the party filing the document must mail or deliver the original signed document to the court. Upon failure to do so, the court may make such orders as are just, including dismissal of the motion or application to which the document filed by facsimile transmission relates.
The court shall not accept filing of any of the following documents by facsimile transmission:
notices of appeal or cross appeal;
briefs or memoranda of law;
applications to set aside award and grant new trial or responsive and reply pleadings thereto; or
any other document exceeding three pages in length, not including the cover sheet.
