Missouri's judiciary is making plans to do more business electronically.

Chief Justice Mary Russell says the state court system will be expanding the availability of electronic filing for attorneys and the ability of the public to view those documents.

Electronic filing already is used in the Supreme Court, the Court of Appeals and the trial courts in 15 counties and the city of St. Louis. Russell says 12 more counties will start using electronic document filing later this year, and 30 others should join next year.
