File & ServeXpress Partners With San Francisco Superior Court for Second e-Filing Case Expansion in 2014

San Francisco Superior Court Adds an Additional 21 New Civil Case Types for e-Filing

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 7, 2014) - Taking a giant step toward becoming a paperless court, the San Francisco Superior Court opened e-Filing today for an additional 21 civil case types. Partnering with File & ServeXpress, the nation's largest document exchange provider serving the legal and judicial communities, the launch is the second expansion this year with 37 general civil case types now available for e-Filing.

The system provided by File & ServeXpress allows for comprehensive e-Filing, e-Service and document management services, eliminating the costly overhead and excessive time required to copy, process and deliver thousands of paper documents each year. E-Filing began with 16 different case types in the Court's general civil cases in January 2014. Since that launch, close to 10,000 general civil cases are live within the system and more than 300 law firms have used the service to e-File and e-Serve more than 2,500 documents saving valuable time, money and resources.

 "With this continued expansion, the San Francisco Superior Court is demonstrating their ongoing commitment to improve services to the public," said Mel Yarbrough, File & ServeXpress CEO. "They are harnessing technology to reduce costs and increase efficiency in the Courts."

He added, "We understood the Court's critical and timely need to increase the capacity for digital document exchange and File & ServeXpress delivered. As a result, filers and law firms now can e-File without having to rely on legacy electronic delivery services or traditional courier services."

File & ServeXpress has served as the Court's e-Filing vendor for more than 14 years in Complex Litigation, Asbestos and Probate Trust cases, which are currently mandated for e-Filing. With the Court's latest expansion, the File & ServeXpress system now provides permissive e-Filing for 21 additional general civil case types:

  • Civil Rights
  • Defamation
  • Eminent Domain
  • Fraud
  • Labor Commission Appeal
