I just got a call from someone with a huge problem because they did not keep a copy of a document they filed in court.
I must have told inmates 1,000s of times: “NEVER file anything in court without keeping a copy!” In Court, Board of Pardons, anything important!
Yes, they really are that uninformed (most would say dumb)… many, many of them. “NEVER file anything in court without keeping a copy!”
There is no guarantee, of course that you will keep them; malicious guards stole my only copies of many legal papers I filed. Read It’s not about What They Did to Me -Prison Abuse paragraph #7.
