Efficiency. E-filing should facilitate more efficient court processes and decisions.
First, once E-filing is implemented courts should re-engineered their rules and processes to take advantage of the new capabilities. A good example is the court in Baltimore, Maryland that adjudicated thousands of asbestos matters. The judge worked with the attorneys to group the electronic submissions 10 at a time containing identical facts (same shipyard, timeframe, and injury) and in turn modified the review presentation screen so that he could more quickly review and approve the civil settlement for the filers.
