February 8, 2018 – New York County Lawyers Association (NYCLA) commends the plan announced by Chief Judge Janet DiFiore in her 2018 State of the Judiciary Address to implement electronic filing in all four of the State’s Appellate Divisions, effective March 1, 2018. The plan to expand electronic filing will continue to increase efficiencies throughout the court system by reducing the need to maintain archives and decrease costs for the parties. As a 21st Century Bar Association, NYCLA recognizes the need to keep pace with changing technology and the needs of the bar as a whole and has consistently urged the adoption of e-filing in the Appellate Divisions and all courts in New York.
NYCLA has been and continues to be committed to the further implementation of e- filing initiatives and related educational programming, which has included:
February 2018: Committee on the Supreme Court submits comment letter in response to Chief Administrative Judge Mark’s December 2017 proposal to expand mandatory e-filing.
December 2017: CLE – Arts & Crafts in Litigation. Jeffrey Carucci, Statewide Coordinator for Electronic Filing and Christopher Gibson, Deputy Statewide Coordinator discussed tips and tricks for e-filing and hyperlinking. An update is planned for later this year.
June 2017 & Now On Demand: Ethically Speaking: Why Lawyers can No Longer Ignore Technology. Part of this program is dedicated to e-filing and hyperlinking.
August 31, 2016: Committee on the Supreme Court submits comment letter in response to Chief Administrative Judge Mark’s proposal to implement mandatory electronic filing.
