Exciting news for Florida Litigators — in the not too distant future, separate email service will be replaced with service by the Court’s eFiling portal. The technology folks anticipate the eFiling Portal will be ready to provide service sometime in mid-September. This will apply to both trial courts and appellate courts. So be on the look out for administrative orders and/or a rule change regarding service of documents in state court.
Until it is officially rolled out, parties will still have to follow current rules on service by email.
