Kansas Supreme Court adds clarification to Rule 122 in advance of efiling mandate

The Kansas Supreme Court has updated Rule 122 to add language to clarify that an electronically filed document must include a certificate of service when service is required under K.S.A. 60-205.

The clarifying language was added to the first line of section (d) of Supreme Court Rule 122: Electronic Filing and Service by Electronic Means.

Updated language in the rule appears in Supreme Court order 2018 SC 52 filed Wednesday.

Supreme Court Rule 122 was one of two rules recently amended by the court to support its mandate that beginning June 25, all Kansas-licensed attorneys who are permitted to practice law under Supreme Court Rule 208(a) must electronically file documents in cases before any state court.

The second rule amended to support the efiling mandate is Supreme Court Rule 119: Fax Filing and Service by Fax

Attorneys who are not yet filing electronically are encouraged to visit the Kansas Courts Electronic Filing web page on the judicial branch website to:
