When plaintiff files a new action, he should note that exhibits are not to be filed into the record
unless and until necessary to oppose a dispositive motion such as a motion for summary judgment. Once a
plaintiff instead has filed originals as exhibits improperly, the originals become part of the suit record and
may not be returned.
