Ohio Court of Claims Unveils E-filing System
After piloting the program for a few months to work out the kinks, the Ohio Court of Claims has announced the ability to receive documents electronically.
Just as it sounds, the e-filing system eliminates the need to file paper documents at the clerk’s counter, according to Clerk of the Court Mark Reed. The Court of Claims adopted e-filing administrative rules in December.
Reed points to the 24/7 nature of the system as one of its greatest benefits. Users can open cases and file documents from anywhere. Users must register at www.eFileOH.com, maintain a current e-mail address where electronic notice and service will be made, and possess a valid credit card for billing purposes, either individually or through a firm.
Training videos, self-help guides, and FAQs are available to assist users. Call 800.297.5377 with any questions.
The Court of Claims is given original jurisdiction to hear and determine all civil actions filed against the state of Ohio and its agencies.
