Effective October 1, 2012 -
Orange County Courts Judge signed an order on 7/19/2012 that mandated that all new Personal Injury/Property Damage/Wrongful Death/Auto Tort cases are to be filed electronically starting 10/1/12. The County has now issued a one month grace period to allow filers the time needed to comply with this new rule. What this means is that you can continue to file your new PI/PD/WDD/Auto Tort cases in paper format for one month. After that time all subsequent filings must be filed electronically.
Keep in mind that if your PI/PD/WDD/Auto Tort case was filed prior to 10/1/12 you can continue to file in paper format for the duration of your case.
Don't forget you can electronically file your legal documents though Direct Legal Support, Inc. for secure e-Filing to courts that accept e-Filing, such as the California’s Superior Courts in Orange County.
