The Appellate Court Clerk’s new electronic filing system will begin operation on July 9. A link on the Appellate Court Clerk’s webpage will provide access to the new system. Once the electronic filing system is in place, attorneys will be permitted to electronically file virtually all new filings in appellate courts. In addition to establishing a new, voluntary system for electronically filing documents, the Supreme Court has established a new fee structure for costs and fees assessed in the appellate courts. Beginning July 9, appellate litigants will be required to pay their fees when initiating a case in the appellate courts rather than waiting until the appellate process is complete.
