2012 Press Releases

 JULY 30, 2012

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


The Louisiana Supreme Court announced today that beginning August 1, 2012, the Court will take a technological step forward as it launches voluntary e-filing (electronic filing) of documents by attorneys. E-filing will be implemented in several phases with an eye toward improving and enhancing the system over time.


“I would like to commend Justice Marcus Clark for shepherding this project to where attorneys statewide can now do business with the Supreme Court online. I would additionally like to thank the Clerk of Court staff, the Information Technology staff, and all of the attorneys who participated in focus group testing of the system. Their knowledge and can-do spirit has made e-filing a customer service reality for the Louisiana Supreme Court,” said Chief Justice Catherine D. “Kitty” Kimball.


A 30-minute online training session is provided on the Louisiana Supreme Court website at www.lasc.org and is required in order to access e-filing. Once trained, a password is provided and documents can be filed online as they would be filed conventionally, except that required copies of the e-filed documents will be made by the Clerk of Court Office rather than by the attorneys themselves. At this time, e-filing is limited to attorneys in good standing with the Louisiana Supreme Court. Technical assistance will be provided by the Clerk of Court Office during regular business hours.


According to Justice Marcus Clark, “Our e-filing system allows for 24-hour access and is designed to work with various levels of technical expertise and equipment. All attorneys throughout the state will now have the opportunity for quick and easy access to the Court around the clock.”


To cover the costs of implementing the e-filing system and preparing the number of copies required by court rule, there is a $100 cost for e-filing writ applications and a $50 cost for e-filing other court documents such as oppositions, replies, and amicus curiae briefs. These e-filing costs are in addition to the regular filing fees. The Court will also continue to accept filings by hand or mail delivery in accordance with existing court rules.


For more information about electronic filing of documents and technical assistance, contact the Louisiana Supreme Court Clerk of Court Office at 504.310.2300 Monday through Friday, 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM.
