Florida: Optional Pro Se Filing in State Court Begins June 20, 2014

You can read the entire article in the Florida Bar News by clicking here… these are a few key points:

Unlike attorneys and other parties providing information to the courts, pro se parties will not be required to perform electronic filing and will retain the option of paper filing.

Pro se filers also will have to comply with Rule of Judicial Adminsitration 2.420 which requires certain confidential informaton be identified in filings so clerks can keep that data out of public view.

Fishback told the authority that pro se and judicial access would begin June 20 with the next upgrade to the portal’s software.

    Judicial access to the e-filing portal has been the one outstanding oversight w/this system. I’m glad to see it being addressed.
