Appellate Practice News


Posted on: Dec 14, 2015

Dear Appellate Practice Section Members:

Voluntary e-filing has been available in the Supreme Court and Court of Appeals since November 9th for all appellate filings except for those that initiate a new case (such as the Notice of Appeal or a Motion for Discretionary Interlocutory Appeal). The Supreme Court’s order can be found here. A revised version of the Appellate Rules, modified for purposes of e-filing, is used by those who e-file and can be found here. The order previously mentioned sets out the specific rules that have been modified.

Those who have used the system have found it very easy and appreciate not having to make trips to the post office or the Statehouse to file their documents. If you haven’t tried it already, please consider doing so. Information on how to get started can be found at http://www.in.gov/judiciary/efile/, including information on free web-based training.
