3d District Launches E-Filing Project

The Court of Appeal for the Third Appellate District is now accepting electronically filed and electronically submitted documents. Electronic filing is the filing of an electronic text-searchable PDF document in lieu of a paper original and any required paper copies with the reviewing court. Electronic submission is the submission of an electronic text-searchable PDF copy of a document to the reviewing court.
The list of documents that may be e-filed or e-submitted can be found here.
Over time, the Court of Appeal anticipates expanding the project to include more types of documents.

Also, in case you missed it, last month the 3d District reduced the hours of its filing window: The public filing window hours are now 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. (no longer 5:00 p.m.!), Monday through Friday
