Will Los Angeles Superior Court now be paperless?
The Los Angeles Superior Court is not paperless. e-Delivery through JTI or Journal Technologies aka journaltech.com is a means for electronically submitting documents through their e-delivery portal, but, once filed, the documents will be printed and the court will still utilize paper files. Please note that you may still file paper documents in person and that this project is only for general jurisdiction personal injury cases not deemed complicated.
Recently the LA Superior Court which uses JTI software announced the following:
NOTICE OF FEE CHANGES
EFFECTIVE AUGUST 1, 2018
Beginning August 1, 2018, the Los Angeles Superior Court will charge an efiling service
fee of $1.75 for each transaction, pursuant to California Rules of Court, rule 2.253 and rule 2.506.
Today the court is printing paper files and storing them on shelves. While we agree this is a good backup source, we feel eventually they will need to go 100% paperless otherwise this may lead to per page costs to the end user if not they will lose money by having to eventually continually increasing their storage capacity.
Let us know your thoughts.
