Electronic court filings available in more Ky. counties

(AP) — Attorneys in 12 more Kentucky counties can now enter case filings without going to the courthouse.

The Administrative Office of the Courts says it has started offering electronic case filing in Breathitt, Clay, Estill, Harlan, Jackson, Lee, Leslie, Letcher, Owsley, Perry, Powell and Wolfe counties.

The AOC says eFiling is available around the clock. It says attorneys with access may file case documents electronically in any of the 106 Kentucky counties that offer the program.

Since the start of eFiling in December 2013, more than 930 attorneys and other users, such as sheriffs, have filed more than 41,000 documents electronically.

The AOC says it plans to have the program available in all 120 Kentucky counties by the end of 2015.
