Proposed Amendments to Supreme Court Rules 119 and 122
The Kansas Supreme Court announced on December 22 that it will require attorneys to begin electronically filing documents in all state courts effective June 25, 2018, and that it is taking public comment until 5 p.m. Monday, January 22, 2018, on rule amendments that advance the efiling requirement.
- Supreme Court Rule 119: Fax Filing and Service. Proposed amendments would no longer allow document filing by fax from Kansas-licensed attorneys who are subject to the efiling requirement in Rule 122.
- Supreme Court Rule 122: Electronic Filing and Transmission of District Court Documents. Proposed amendments include the requirement for electronic filing by Kansas-licensed attorneys who are permitted to practice law under Rule 208(a). Other amendments address electronic service, certificates of service, and filings made untimely if an efiling system is unavailable.
Proposed amended rules are available on the Kansas judicial branch website at http://wwwkscourts.orgunder What's New.
