The Florida Supreme Court has announced that the Second District Court of Appeal will be implementing appellate filing through the statewide e-portal. The other DCAs that have gone to electronic filing have used the eDCA system pioneered by the First District, so this will be the first DCA to use the statewide e-filing system. See Administrative Order No. AOSC13-29 [.pdf]. The court will begin accepting voluntary e-filing on August 19, 2013, with efiling becoming mandatory October 1, 2013.
In anticipation of the change, the Second District Clerk’s office will be holding a training session on appellate filing on July 31, 2013 at 2 pm in the Stetson Law School courtroom [.pdf of announcement]. Given how different the ePortal is from eDCA, I am sure the training will be quite interesting.
