Hon. Lawrence K. Marks, chief administrative judge of the New York State Unified Court System, issued a memorandum this week advising attorneys practicing in Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island and the Bronx that the court system will expand the mandatory E-Filing system.
Beginning Feb. 16, 2021, the current mandatory E-Filing program in Kings County Supreme Court will be expanded to include all civil actions except:
- CPLR Art. 70 Proceedings
- CPLR Art. 78 Proceedings
- Election Law Proceedings
- Matrimonial Matters
- Mental Hygiene Law Matters
- Consumer Credit Transactions as defined in CPLR 105(f)
- Residential Foreclosure Actions as defined in RPAPL 1304
Anyone who would like to comment on the court system’s E-Filing program are encouraged to email firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Feb. 12, 2021. The court has also created a website — www.nycourts.gov/rules/efiling/ — for public notice of any proposals to or expansions of the mandatory e-filing programs, and for posting any public comments received on such proposals.
