The given definitions do not capture how "transom" is used in court filings. A transom filing is one made as a court clerk's office opens in the morning for a document that was due the previous day, typically a day when the clerk's office was not open until midnight. Transom filings can be made for briefs and other documents due on a specific day, but are not advisable for notices of appeal or other documents for which timely filing is a jurisdictional requirement.

See Wiktionary:Tea room#transom, where I've reposted your comment - it will be seen by a much wider audience there. Thryduulf 23:17, 28 April 2010 (UTC)
Is this OK? Also, see over the transom. DCDuring TALK 20:06, 30 April 2010 (UTC)
