SCOTX to Hold Hearing on Uniform E-Filing System


This afternoon at 2:00, the Texas Supreme Court will hold a public hearing to explore the feasibility of a statewide uniform system for electronic court filings. The hearing will take place in the Supreme Court Courtroom and will be webcast live here.

The Court is considering whether Texas ought to implement a system modeled to some degree after Public Access to Court Electronic Records (PACER), the federal courts’ electronic document portal. In conjunction with the Case Management-Electronic Case Filing (CM-ECF) feature, PACER allows litigants to file documents electronically at no charge, 24 hours a day. Parties and the public may access the docket online and may view and download listed documents for a fee.
