Notice of Electronic Filing
One area of concern for attorneys is the notice of electronic filing (NEF) in Track 1 courts.
If an NEF is dated before July 30, the link to the filing no longer works. The reason is that the filing was moved to the new centralized case management system, and the link to it is severed. These filings are accessible through the case history page in the electronic filing program.
Cases on hold
Nearly all of the reasons that caused cases to be put "on hold" are now resolved.
More than 7,300 documents have been electronically filed in Track 1 courts since transitioning to the new centralized case management system. About 20 cases are currently on hold and we are working to resolve these as quickly as possible.
The reasons cases are on hold are unrelated to any action or inaction of the efiler. We are working through this issue with the centralized case management system vendor.
Following new rules
New and amended rules are in effect in conjunction with our move to the centralized case management system:
Supreme Court Rules 20-24: Kansas eCourt Rules (adopted June 14, 2019)
These rules apply only in courts that are using the new centralized case management system. Rule 20(d). Beginning August 5, 2019, the Kansas eCourt Rules apply to filings submitted in the 8th and 21st Judicial Districts, which are composed of Riley, Clay, Morris, Geary, Dickinson, and Marion counties.
Electronic filers have asked how to comply with Rule 24(b) and also provide information required in pleadings. For example, Rule 24(b)(10) lists "the physical address of an individual's residence" as personally identifiable information. Rule 24(c) lists six exceptions when information is not considered personally identifiable information. An electronic filer should analyze whether an exception applies that allows information―such as a residential address―to be included in a document efiled under the Kansas eCourt Rules.
Supreme Court Rule 111: Form of Pleadings and Other Documents (amended June 14, 2019)
This amended rule applies to all filings in all courts. It defines the format for pleadings and other documents.
