Impression or electronic reproduction of seal.
The seal of a court may be affixed by:
Impressing the seal on a document or on a substance attached to a document and capable of receiving the impression; or
Electronically reproducing the seal on a document in accordance with the provisions of subsection 2.
Each court that uses an electronically reproduced seal shall reproduce the seal of the court in accordance with:
Any electronic filing rules adopted by the Supreme Court that govern the electronic filing process in all the courts of this State;
Any rules adopted by the Supreme Court which are intended to help safeguard a document from being changed after the electronic seal is affixed and to reduce the likelihood of the electronic seal being reproduced without authorization; and
Any local rules of practice adopted by the court which establish the specific procedure to implement the electronic reproduction of the seal and which are consistent with any electronic filing rules adopted by the Supreme Court and any rules adopted by the Supreme Court pursuant to paragraph (b).
A seal that is electronically reproduced pursuant to subsection 1 has the same legal effect as a seal that is impressed pursuant to subsection 1.
