Lawyers on both sides of the bar say they’ve noticed improvements in the state’s new e-filing system, and court administrators have the statistics to prove it. But the stats also show areas for improvement.

The data uses hard numbers to quantify the top e-filing complaints that really bother lawyers: supposed delays between when an attorney files a document and a clerk accepts it, and the rate at which a clerk returns an e-filing for correction. The information shows that EFileTexas.gov is performing well overall, but that a lawyer’s individual experience really depends upon where he works. Some clerks are better than others at quickly processing documents and maintaining low return-for-correction rates.
