One Indiana county remains to voluntarily implement electronic filing in its circuit and superior courts, wrapping up a years-long effort to make all 92 Indiana counties compliant with a statewide e-filing system.
E-filing became available in Clinton and Pike counties Friday, leaving just Sullivan County to make the digital switch before the year’s end. Clinton Circuit and Superior Courts and Pike Circuit Courts will require mandatory e-filing on July 16 for attorneys filing in those courts.
Sullivan Circuit and Superior Courts are the last to make the transition. The county is scheduled to go voluntarily live on August 9, requiring mandatory e-filing in October.
The Indiana Supreme Court began the rollout of its e-filing initiative in 2015, with an initial goal of completion by the end of 2018. That deadline was extended to reach seven counties — including Sullivan — and is expected to wrap up before 2019 is over, judicial initiative leaders say.
