The effort to bring a modern electronic filing system to every Superior Court in North Carolina started off with a bang but has quietly fizzled in the two years since its inception.
The momentum behind the project stalled shortly after it was launched in 2009, when the N.C. Administrative Office of the Courts started its electronic filing pilot project in Chowan, Davidson and Wake counties.
AOC officials predicted at the time of the launch that the project could be rolled out statewide as early as 2010. But the project still has not expanded beyond the original three counties.
“Of course, at first there were high hopes that this was the beginning of electronic filing in North Carolina,” said Wake County Clerk of Superior Court Lorrin Freeman (pictured with assistant clerk Tasha O'Neal). “Since then, the court’s budget has been cut in three successive legislative cycles and any expansion on the pilot project has been put on hold.”
