GA high court launches electronic filing

Press Release

ATLANTA - Chief Justice Carol Hunstein has announced that effective immediately, the Supreme Court of Georgia has begun to accept electronic briefs and other filings in place of paper ones.

As of today, the high court is accepting all motions, letters, applications, petitions, briefs and State Bar Disciplinary matters in electronic form.

The move to "e-filing" means lawyers can now send their documents directly from their computers to the Supreme Court's electronic docketing system. The parties will no longer have to hand carry or mail their paperwork to the Clerk of the Court.

"What we're talking about here is a revolutionary change that is a win-win situation for the Court and for the litigants," said Chief Justice Hunstein. "The parties will save time and money by no longer having to print, copy and deliver paper documents. No more fighting Atlanta traffic to get those documents into our Clerk's office by the 4:30 filing deadline."

The Supreme Court will accept electronic briefs and other filings from attorneys with a Georgia State Bar membership number who are in good standing both with the State Bar of Georgia and the Supreme Court of Georgia.
