    The Arizona Association of Superior Court Clerks submits that the electronic signature requirements proposed in R11-0011 for Civil Rule 11(a)(2) conflict with the electronic signature format proposed in R11-0012 for Supreme Court Rule 124(g)(1). The Clerks take no position on which electronic signature standard should prevail, but request clarification in the final rules as to the proper format for an electronically signed document.
