E-Filing May Become Mandatory in N.Y. Courts

by Fred Abramson on March 4, 2011 · 1 comment

The New York Law Journal reports that a New York Judge will seek authority to require all state courts to implement mandatory electronic filing.  E-Filing is mandatory in Federal Court and in commercial cases for lawsuits over $100,000 in New York County.

Foreseeing “vast” cost savings to the courts, litigants, and the bar, Judge Lippman said Tuesday he will seek authority to require all state courts to implement mandatory electronic filing. “In the year 2011, this is not a pipe-dream, but rather the very least we should be doing to move the courts boldly and efficiently into the 21st century,” the judge said in a statement.
