Denver District Court Begins Long Trip Down "E-filing Road"
The Denver District Court is in the midst of growing pains – the kind that comes from beginning that long trip down “e-filing road”. Most of the comments I’ve heard from my colleagues range from the expected (“I can’t work on briefs unless I have the paper in my hand”) to the unexpected (“E-filing makes me feel like nothing more than a clerk.”). The Courts have been providing in-chambers training on the new system, judge by judge, courtroom by courtroom. This training has been paying off. Just a few weeks ago, two of the judges were discussing their joy at finding that they are able to change proposed orders by using the comments tool on their menu. They were ecstatic! Now there’s two more converts in the Denver District Court, 18 more to go.
