E-filing is Not Great for All

E-filing is not great for all

The new e-filing system of the Orange County Superior Court requires all civil case filings be done by an intermediary. They charge extra fees for the handling. The system also now requires payment of court filing fees by Credit Card of ACH. Again there are added fees that the litigants must pay. Law firm billing is also now a nightmare since every filing, previously free, has a charge associated. This means litigants get monthly bills, call with questions and consume more admin time.
