To celebrate the conclusion of a years-long rollout of electronic filing in all 92 Indiana counties, a statewide e-filing celebration will be hosted by the Indiana Supreme Court to mark the milestone.
The celebration will take place at 12 p.m. Wednesday in the Sullivan County Courthouse. Chief Justice Loretta Rush, Justice Steven David, Indiana Court of Appeals Judge Paul Mathias and other local dignitaries will gather at the courthouse to celebrate the statewide rollout alongside colleagues, staff and attorneys.
First to implement electronic filing was Hamilton County in 2015. The Supreme Court’s initial goal for the statewide rollout – completion by the end of 2018 – was extended to accommodate seven counties who wanted to first implement the Odyssey online case management system before making the e-filing switch.
Sullivan County wrapped up the rollout last month and will require mandatory e-filing on Oct. 8.
Now, only the Hobart City Court in Lake County has yet to make the e-filing transition. The city court will move to voluntary e-filing Sept. 27 and mandatory e-filing Nov. 26.
By the end of June 2019, nearly 17 million documents had been filed electronically, according to the high court. More than 500,000 documents are e-filed in Indiana each month, the court said.
The Sullivan County Courthouse is located at 100 Courthouse Square in Sullivan. Those interested in attending the celebration event should contact Supreme Court public information officer Kathryn Dolan.
