Supreme Court Delays Mandatory e-Filing

The Florida Supreme Court, on its own motion, has concluded that the state’s appellate courts are not yet ready for mandatory e-filing, delaying implementation of the requirement to December 1, 2012 for itself, and April 1, 2013 for the District Courts of Appeal. See SC-11-399 (September 19, 2012) [.pdf].

The Order also gives trial court clerks until July 1, 2013 to implement transmission of electronic records on appeal.

The Order requires further study and reporting to the Court by the Florida Courts E-Filing Authority, and the Florida Courts Technology Commission. So come November, we will know more about the courts’ readiness for e-filing of appellate briefs.

NOTE: In October, 2012, the Court withdrew its order and issued a revised SC11-399 [.pdf] in its place.
