Implementation of mandatory e-Filing and e-Service is a success story for the San Francisco Superior Court.

The San Francisco Superior Court has announced that it will mandate e-Filing for most court cases through the Court’s e-Filing portal, managed by File & ServeXpress beginning December 8, 2014. File & ServeXpress, the national leader in e-Filing and e-Service will provide filers into the San Francisco Superior Court with an all-in-one solution that supports the lifespan of a case, covering more than just the e-Filed document transaction. The all-in-one solution provides a central command center for the law firm with built-in tools to manage the life of an electronic case.

“Implementation of mandatory e-Filing and e-Service is a success story for the San Francisco Superior Court,” said Mel Yarbrough, CEO of File & ServeXpress. “Mandatory e-Filing gives the Court a valuable tool to improve service to the public, save money and reduce expensive paper usage and storage, while providing law firms the best solution to manage the life of their cases, increase security of their documents and provide more efficiencies to their clients. It’s a win for the Court and a win for the filers.”

The San Francisco Superior Court began its e-Filing expansion in January 2014 with 16 initial cases. Expansion continued in April and July to all case types except Limited Unlawful Detainer and Small Claims cases. Since the initial launch, the Court has processed 8,000 general Civil e-Filing transactions from more than 800 law firms, who have e-Filed and e-Served documents through File & ServeXpress, saving time, money and resources. The mandate effective December 8, 2014 will cover all expanded case types.

File & ServeXpress has served as the Court’s e-Filing vendor for more than 15 years in Complex Litigation, Asbestos and Probate Trust cases, and will continue as exclusive host of these cases following the mandate expansion.

To support filers through the transition, File & ServeXpress will provide free training, free technical support and a local, dedicated Account Manager.
