The Fort Worth Court of Appeals will begin accepting electronically-filed documents in appeals and original proceedings through the portal on Monday, August 6, 2012.  Electronic filing is voluntary at this time.  The court previously adopted local rules addressing electronic filing.  In addition, further information about e-filing may be found on the court’s website.

With e-filing in the court of appeals right around the corner, there was a lot of talk about technology and e-briefs at the UT appellate CLE earlier this month.  Some Texas Supreme Court justices even discussed their use of technology (Chief Justice Jefferson reads petitions for review on his Kindle), as well as their favorite blogs.
