E-filing
 

     As announced by Chief Judge Janet DiFiore during her State of Our Judiciary address on February 6, 2018, electronic filing (e-filing) of documents will begin in the Appellate Divisions on March 1, 2018.  At first, e-filing will only be required in certain types of cases.  The list of those cases that must be e-filed in the Appellate Divisions will continue to expand until the newly adopted e-filing rules are fully implemented. 

     E-filing is accomplished through the New York State Courts Electronic Filing System (NYSCEF).  Please note, however, that if your case is subject to the Court's e-filing rules, counsel filing the notice of appeal may have to, among other things, register or confirm their registration as an authorized filer with the NYSCEF system within 14 days of that filing (see 22 NYCRR 1245.3).


         E-filing rules in the Third Department apply as follows:

  • As of March 1, 2018, the e-filing rules apply to:

             Appeals in those civil actions commenced by summons and complaint in
              Supreme Court originating in the Third Judicial District in which the notice of
              appeal is filed on or after March 1, 2018; and

  • As of April 1, 2018, the e-filing rules will also apply to:

             Appeals in those civil actions commenced by summons and complaint in
              Supreme Court originating in the Fourth and Sixth Judicial Districts in which
              the notice of appeal is filed on or after April 1, 2018 ;

             Any matter that was e-filed in the trial court in which the notice of
              appeal is filed on or after April 1, 2018
              (Statement of E-Filing Form Required);

             Any matter in which all parties consent to the case being e-filed and the
              notice of appeal is filed on or after April 1, 2018
              (Statement of E-Filing Form Required).
