Maryland Begins Electronic Filing of Court Documents

Posted: Updated:

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - The Maryland court system is launching an electronic case management system to eventually enable people statewide to file and view court documents on their computers.

Tuesday's launch in Annapolis makes electronic filing mandatory for attorneys practicing in Anne Arundel County and the state appellate courts.

The Maryland Judiciary plans to roll out the system, county by county, over the next five years.

The project aims to modernize case management in Maryland counties, some of which are using systems that are 30 years old.

The federal courts already offer electronic access to court records. Many rulings by Maryland appellate courts are available online but county court records generally are not.
