The Supreme Court of California has published its eFiling rules that will support the launch on Monday July 10, 2017 of its electronic filing system. The court has adopted a phased approach to the system’s implementation, which will initially be voluntary for filers, but become mandatory on September 1, and reduces the related number of paper copies required to two.

“eFiling will enable petitions to be more easily filed in a timely manner, reducing the cost of petitioning the high court, and bringing greater efficiencies to everyone involved,” commented Jorge Navarrete, Court Administrator and Clerk of the Court. “The new rules clearly outline the process, requirements, and fee structure, but also take into account privacy protection and the needs of the trial courts and Self-represented litigants—it is a technological step in the right direction for everyone involved in the appellate process.”
