ORDER REQUIRES ELECTRONIC FILINGS
VIA STATE’S PORTAL WEB SITE
The Supreme Court of Texas has issued a new order requiring all attorneys to file all documents electronically with the Court through the Texas.gov web site, the portal established by the Texas Legislature.
The order takes effect September 12, 2011.
Persons not represented by attorneys may file documents online, but they are not required to e-file.
Anyone electronically filing documents also must provide the Court with one paper copy of a record in an original proceeding, two paper copies of petitions, responses, replies and amicus briefs, and four copies of any brief on the merits within three business days after the document is filed online. The paper courtesy copies must be the printed version of the file-stamped electronically filed document.
