TOPEKA—State courts are one step closer in their transition to a centralized electronic court environment with the Supreme Court’s launch of its Kansas eCourt project today.
The eCourt project will focus on merging electronic document filing already used in most Kansas courts with a centralized case management system, uniting all court case information and business processes on a single platform.
“Courts have used technology to improve day-to-day business operations, but it has been at a district or county level, essentially creating standalone digital environments,” said Chief Justice Lawton R. Nuss. “This initiative to centralize most of our court records and processes will allow us to share information across district and county lines, where we can make the most effective use of our limited staff and fiscal resources. It also strengthens the unification of our state’s courts the people of Kansas asked for in their constitution more than 40 years ago.”
TOPEKA—The Kansas Supreme Court announced today that it has a project underway to expand attorneys’ use of electronic filing in the Supreme Court and the Court of Appeals with the intent that it will become mandatory effective November 2, 2015.
“This is an important step toward more modern courts that allow attorneys to electronically file their documents from anywhere, saving them both time and money,” said Lawton R. Nuss, chief justice of the Kansas Supreme Court. “In our experience, many attorneys who bring cases to the appellate courts are open to using electronic filing, especially when they discover how easy it is.”
