Texas Supreme Court to Require Attorneys to E-file Documents
There are a growing number of state courts that now require electronic filing of petitions, briefs, responses, and other documents. According to a posting on the Tex Parte Blog , the Texas Supreme Court will soon require attorneys to file all court documents electronically beginning March 14, 2011 and issued the rules on March 1, 2011. The article points out that this is already done in some of the state district courts in Texas, but unlike with these courts, the attorneys will need to send two paper copies when they upload the documents.
