The session, which is open to attorneys and support staff, will be held Friday, June 13, from noon-1:30 p.m. at the Vista courthouse (325 South Melrose Dr., Vista). Attendees will receive one CLE credit.
San Diego Superior Court officials are preparing to allow e-filing for cases in its North County civil division.
The session will cover the legal requirements for e-filing as well as a “how to” demonstration for those wishing to access e-filing in San Diego Superior Court.

Effective June 30, 2014, documents may be filed electronically in non-mandated civil cases in the North County division 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.
The case types that shall be subject to mandatory e-filing are: civil class actions; consolidated and coordinated actions, where all cases involved are imaged cases; and actions that are provisionally complex under CRC 3.400-3.403 as set forth in the Civil Cover Sheet, Judicial Council form CM-010.
Complex cases included in mandatory e-fling include antitrust/trade regulation, mass tort, environmental/toxic tort, and securities litigation cases, as well as insurance coverage claims arising from these case types.
