The Orange County Superior Court will launch an electronic evidence submission pilot program on April 5, 2021. The program will include selected courtrooms in Probate, Civil, Small Claims, Family Law, and Traffic. Five courtrooms have been designated to participate in the pilot program: C10, C61, C65, CT1, and VCC5.
“This effort is designed to make the Court’s services more efficient and enable cases to be processed faster, while at the same time making it easier for the parties to cases to submit evidence,” said Erick L. Larsh, Orange County Superior Court Presiding Judge.
Under this program the Court will request that evidence be electronically submitted to the designated courtrooms via the electronic evidence portal. Each courtroom will post additional instructions on the Court’s website.
“We are embarking on this pilot as we are slowly emerging from the worst pandemic in a century, and we are faced with a backlog of cases. This new process will be a significant aid in overcoming this problem,” said David Yamasaki, Court Executive Officer.
