Supreme Court Considers Amendments to Allow for E-Filing

The Ohio Supreme Court is considering amendments to the Rules of Practice to allow attorneys to electronically file (e-file) documents.

Clerk of the Court Sandra Grosko said the changes are needed to implement e-filing with the court and recommends the justices add several new rules.

Some noteworthy proposals include adding sections to the Rules of Practice that specifically address e-filing such as information about how to register for e-filing, what documents are allowed to be e-filed, and when copies of e-filing documents may be required.

The clerk’s office also proposed additional changes to the Rules of Practice while it conducted its biennial review of the rules. Some of those suggestions include adding sections that address cross-appeals and that clarify costs for both appeals and original actions.

The amendments will be published for a 30-day public comment period, which ends October 29.
