Kentucky's courts are taking a step toward making electronic case filing a reality statewide.
Administrative Office of the Courts Director Laurie K. Dudgeon said eFiling should be in place in every Kentucky county by the end of 2015.
The AOC expects to set up pilot sites in a dozen or more Kentucky counties next year.
Kentucky Chief Justice John D. Minton Jr. said in a news release from the AOC that the switch to electronic filing will create substantial savings and make the state's legal system more efficient.
