As of March 4, 2013, San Diego Superior Court will open up eFiling in its Central Civil Division. Effective June 30, 2014 San Diego Superior Court will open up eFiling in its North Civil Division. Attorneys and the public will now be able to file documents with the Court without physically coming into the courthouse.
Documents may be filed electronically in non-mandated civil cases in the Central Division where either: (1) the case is first initiated on or after March 4, 2013; or (2) the case is already pending as of March 3, 2013 and has been imaged by the court.
Documents may be filed electronically in non-mandated civil cases in the North Division where either: (1) the case is first initiated on or after June 30, 2014 ; or (2) the case is already pending as of June 29, 2014 and has been imaged by the court.
Also beginning March 4, 2013, certain case types will be subject to mandatory eFiling, including civil class actions, some consolidated and coordinated actions, and actions that are provisionally complex under CRC 3.400-3.403 (as set forth in the Civil Cover Sheet, Judicial Council form CM-010 – but not including construction defect actions). “Complex cases” included in mandatory filing are as follows: Antitrust/Trade Regulation, Mass Tort, Environmental/Toxic Tort, and Securities Litigation cases, as well as insurance coverage claims arising from these case types.
Effective June 2, 2014, mandatory electronic filing through the court’s E-File Service Provider, One Legal, will be required for all Construction Defect Cases, including those currently being filed through File&Serve Xpress (fka LexisNexis File&Serve). As of 5:01 p.m. on May 30, 2014, no documents will be allowed to be filed through File&Serve Xpress.
