INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — An online filing system for state court cases has now been embraced by all but four of Indiana’s 96 counties.
Putnam and Miami counties instituted voluntary electronic filing last week, and they’ll be requiring mandatory e-filing by mid-May.
The Indiana Lawyer reports that only Clinton, Howard, Pike and Sullivan counties now remain to make the digital filing switch to the state’s Odyssey case management system . That system allows for free online searches of the status of court cases.
Howard County is scheduled to go live in April, followed by Clinton and Pike counties in May. Those three counties will require mandatory e-filing in June and July.
Sullivan County has yet to deploy the Odyssey case management system. E-filing will be implemented there after the case management system is upgraded.
