The new filing system, called TrueFiling, will allow users to e-file documents to both the Supreme Court and appeals court in Michigan. Initially, filing will be voluntary, but the high court anticipates that e-filing will eventually become mandatory for both courts. The new system will be available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It will accept Microsoft Word documents, pdfs, text files, tiffs, pngs and jpgs. The courts will prefer original pleadings to be submitted as Word documents, text files or searchable pdfs.
For more information about the new system, read Michigan Supreme Court Order 2014-23.
