INDIANAPOLIS (WISH)—Officials announced on Thursday that Indiana trial and appellate courts will launch a statewide e-filing system for court documents.
The decision was reached because of the convenience and efficiency of e-filing. Right now, paper documents are filed with trial court clerks across the state. Officials say not only are documents filed on paper, they’re also maintained on a 28-year-old computer system.
The appellate courts will also start using the Odyssey case management system – which courts in 48 counties already use.
The statewide e-filing system is expected to start in phases beginning in 2015.
