(INDIANAPOLIS) – Indiana’s courts hope to be paperless by the end of next year:.

Chief Justice Loretta Rush says the computerization project saves you trees and tax dollars. It’s also enabled additional changes that benefit you if you have to go to court, like automatically texting reminders of your court date.

All but nine counties now have electronic filing. Most of those remaining are waiting to make the switch at the same time they adopt an online case lookup system. That system now covers all but 30 counties.

Hoosiers filed more than six-million court documents electronically last year.
