TITLE 201. RULES OF JUDICIAL AMDINISTRATION
CHAPTER 19. MISCELLANEOUS ADMINISTRATIVE PROVISIONS
Rule 1906. Prohibited Communication with Jurists.
No litigant or any other participant in a legal matter or proceeding shall send a communication related thereto to the home address of a jurist. Such communications will not be reviewed and will have no legal or procedural significance. The communication will not be returned or forwarded, but will be destroyed.
For purposes of this rule, the term ''jurist'' encompasses all jurists at any level of the Unified Judicial System. It includes, but is not limited to, Justices of the Supreme Court, as well as judges of the appellate courts, courts of common pleas and the minor courts.
These types of communications will have no effect on the legal matter or proceeding. For example, the mailing of a prohibited correspondence will neither toll the applicable statute of limitation nor change any filing date requirements.
