This letter was sent to the RCBA from the Clerk of Courts, Samuel Christensen:
To the Members of the Racine County Bar Association:
As you may be aware, Racine County is currently a mandatory electronic filing (efiling) county for Civil, Small Claims, Paternity, and Family cases. We became a mandatory efiling county on December 1st, 2016. This means that filings in these case types MUST be submitted electronically by attorneys.
On January 18th, 2017, voluntary efiling for criminal cases (Felony, Misdemeanor,
Criminal Traffic, and Forfeitures cases) became available. This means that these case
types are available to attorneys via the efiling system but is not required.
I wanted to make you aware that beginning on March 1st, 2017, efiling for criminal cases will become mandatory.
If you are not already familiar with the Wisconsin Courts’ Website for electronic filing (www.wicourts.gov/efile), I would highly recommend visiting it for more information. It is an excellent resource for information on how to use the efiling system.
If you have any questions in this regard please feel free to contact Samuel Christensen:
