SD Superior Court to begin e-filing in North County civil division

Effective June 30, San Diego Superior Court will initiate e-filing in its North County civil division.

Attorneys and the public will be able to file documents with the court without physically coming into the courthouse.

Documents may be filed electronically in North County civil cases where either the case is first initiated on or after June 30, 2014, or the case is already pending as of June 30, 2014, and has been imaged by the court.

“In addition to making it more convenient for lawyers and litigants, e-filing helps the court process documents more efficiently, which is particularly important given the recent and extensive budget cuts,” said North County Assistant Supervising Judge William Dato.

For court users, benefits include not having to wait in line at the courthouse or leave documents in drop boxes afterhours. With e-filing, users are able to file through the designated vendor in a secure fashion, ensuring all documents related to the filing arrive at the court together.

Additionally, e-file users have the convenience of submitting documents to the court via their home or office computer.
