Chief justice to toast e-filing by all 92 counties

By The Associated Press

SULLIVAN — Indiana's chief justice this week will help celebrate the adoption of the state's online court filing system by all 92 Indiana counties.

State Supreme Court Chief Justice Loretta Rush will join Justice Steven David and other members of the legal community Wednesday in marking the milestone at the Sullivan County Courthouse in Sullivan.

The southwestern Indiana county made the digital filing switch in August, becoming the last Indiana county to do so.

Indiana's three appellate courts are also part of the system, which allows for free online searches of the status of state court cases.

The state Supreme Court says about 17 million documents have been filed electronically in Indiana since July 2015, when Hamilton County became the first county to adopt the e-filing system.
