SACRAMENTO—The California Court of Appeal for the Third Appellate District will require attorneys to comply with mandatory e-filing in all case types beginning September 14, 2015. Attorneys will e-file documents using TrueFiling, an e-filing portal developed by ImageSoft, Inc. Optional e-filing through the TrueFiling system may begin as early as August 24, 2015. Self-represented litigants will be permitted, but will not be required, to e-file documents using TrueFiling.
A pilot program that funds free legal services for low-income Californians facing critical civil cases drastically increased the likelihood of settlement, improved the longevity of court orders, and reduced court costs, a new study shows.
The court will host an e-filing webinar next month to help attorneys and the public use the new system.
