Georgia Court of Appeals Alliows Electronic Filing

The Georgia Court of Appeals has begun accepting briefs electronically this week.

Chief Judge M. Yvette Miller said the court expects to allow additional types of electronic filings, such as motions and requests for extensions or oral argument, by the end of January.

E-filing is required by the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals and the Northern District of Georgia, as well as in many Fulton State Court and some Fulton County Superior Court cases.
