Georgia top court launches e-filing system

Georgia's top court on Monday began accepting electronic filings of legal briefs, instead of requiring lawyers to submit paper documents.

The Georgia Supreme Court's new "e-filing" system should be a "win-win situation" for the court and its litigants, Chief Justice Carol Hunstein said. Parties can save time and money by no longer having to print, copy and deliver court documents, she said.

Attorneys who wish to register with the new electronic filing system can find instructions how to do so on the Georgia Supreme Court's website.
