Every Indiana attorney’s annual registration fees are going up $15 this year, just as everyone must begin using a new online portal to register and pay their fees by Oct. 1.
The state judiciary is moving forward with a plan to establish an appellate case management system, which someday could entail
an e-filing system similar to what the federal courts currently have access to.
Appellate attorneys no longer receive a mailed hard copy of any order issued by Indiana's highest courts. Instead, those lawyers are now receiving documents in an e-mail.
Outside of courtrooms, conference rooms, and law firm offices, there's a place that most lawyers don't often see but is an essential step in the process cases go through at the Indiana appellate level.
Those needing to make after-hour filings for Indiana's two highest appellate courts will have to alter their routine as soon as June 1.
