State of the art appellate e-filing web-based portal?

Appellate lawyer Don Willenburg alerts us to the fact that a request for proposal has been issued for the California Appellate Courts for a vendor-operated, subscription-based pilot e-filing program:

"The purpose of this Request for Proposal (RFP) is to obtain a solution that provides a branchwide electronic filing (e-filing) services solution for the Courts of Appeal and the Supreme Court. This would be accomplished in two phases. Phase 1 consists of the First District Court of Appeal as the pilot court. Phase 2 may include the remaining Courts of Appeal and the Supreme Court and may entail additional mutually agreed upon requirements from Phase 1."

We'll all be keeping a close eye on this, naturally...
