Court of Appeals Implements e-Filing System

January 11, 2009

The Georgia Court of Appeals has implemented its e-filing system that will allow attorneys to file briefs with the Court electronically. The Court adopted Rule 46 on December 1, 2009, putting the long anticipated system into effect.

Rule 46. Electronic Filing of Documents.
Counsel shall be permitted to file documents with the Court by using the Court's electronic filing system. Counsel must agree to the terms of use and comply with the instructions of the Court's e-filing system. Counsel must also comply with all Rules of the Court except as modified by the electronic filing system terms of use or instructions.
