filing date

The time as of which a claim or demand must be filed. The date of filing as endorsed upon an instrument or pleading by the officer who receives it. The filing date of an application for a patent is the date upon which the application was filed in the patent office, and not the date on which the filing fee was paid. Hazeltine Corp. v Electric Service Engineering Corp. (DC NY) 18 F2d 662.
