Indiana Chief Justice Loretta Rush will meet with Hamilton County court staff, clerks, judges and attorneys Wednesday morning to congratulate them on being the first county to implement e-filing as part of a statewide measure.
“This is a major step toward all 92 counties accepting electronic filings rather than paper. We want to say thank you in person,” Rush said in a statement. She will be joined by project leaders Justice Steven David and Court of Appeals Judge Paul Mathias at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday at the courthouse in Noblesville.
In 2014, the Indiana Supreme Court announced the implementation of statewide e-filing which will reduce paper copies, postage and trips to the clerk’s office. E-filing is scheduled to be implemented statewide by the end of 2018.
Hamilton County is now accepting e-filing of most civil cases. Information about e-filing can be found at courts.in.gov/efile. The rules and implementation schedule, list of service providers and details about training sessions will be updated online.
