The Minnesota Judicial Branch has taken an historic step into the future with the decision to move state courts from a framework of paper files to an electronic information environment. This initiative will result in significant benefits for judges, court employees, attorneys, and most importantly, the hundreds of thousands of people served each year.
Since Sept. 1, 2012, eFiling and eService has been mandatory for attorneys and government entities filing civil and family cases in the Second Judicial District (Ramsey County) and the Fourth Judicial District (Hennepin County).
Nine additional courts were selected on Mar. 22, 2012, as eFiling/eService pilot sites. They include district courts in Cass, Clay, Cook, Dakota, Faribault, Kandiyohi, Lake, Morrison, and Washington counties.

A case document imaging pilot program is also under way in the First Judicial District.
It will take several years to roll out eCourtMN statewide.
