Appellate Court E-Filing Becoming a Reality


Three years ago, I asked when appellate courts were going to catch up on e-filing. At the time, I noted some of the advantages e-filing presents over traditional methods and observed that appellate courts had been slow to meet the trend.

Times are finally changing.
