The "keys" to success:
1) Web Application...built by a 3rd Party (LexisNexis File & Serve at no cost to the Court)
(eliminates the need for new hardware if you have relatively new equipment, an Internet browser and broadband connection to the Internet)
2) A Judge/Clerk who understand that to get the benefits they are looking for...you have to make it mandatory
3) Realization that scanning digitally created documents...is not a good use of time or resource
3) Attorneys who understand their time is valuable and electronic filing saves time, which saves their client's money; the time saved can be used by the attorney for other clients. Other benefits: see this for a recent post on the subject
Congratulations to the Judiciary in Beaver County, PA....a judiciary who is using technology like the rest of the world!
