On May 30, 2017, our Supreme Court issued an order expanding the eCourts electronic filing system to the Civil Part of the Superior Court’s Law Division. The order notes that the eCourts filing and record-keeping system is already a reality in the criminal courts and tax courts, as well as in foreclosure proceedings and in the Special Civil Part. It announces that, between now and December 2017, eCourts will be implemented in the Civil Part—the trial court of general and plenary civil jurisdiction in this state—on a vicinage-by-vicinage basis. The order supplements and relaxes the appropriate rules of court, making the electronic filing of pleadings and other documents mandatory in the Civil Part within 60 days of implementation in each vicinage. The May 30, 2017 order included a cure provision that allowed documents submitted in paper form to be marked “received but not filed” and re-filed electronically within 10 days, but that was eliminated by order of July 5, 2017. “[A]s of the mandatory electronic filing date for each vicinage, any document submitted in paper form by an attorney filing in a Civil matter (Law Division, Civil Part (the L docket) shall be rejected for filing, with the direction to the attorney to file the matter electronically.” The document won’t be considered filed until the date it is received electronically.
