Florham Park associate Lauren Godfrey authored two articles entitled “E-Discovery: A Hands-On Approach” and “Ten Tips for E-Filing Court Documents” which were published in the Tort Trial & Insurance Practice Section’s Summer 2006 and Winter 2009 issues of Tort Source: A Publication of the Tort Trial & Insurance Practice Section.  Lauren notes that, in addition to e-filing documents in federal courts, some state and appellate courts are also instituting e-filing procedures.  This option can save money on copy costs and service fees, and also allows the filer up to midnight to file court documents.  Policies and procedures are in flux and may differ between jurisdictions; however, Lauren’s tips are applicable, regardless of which court’s electronic filing system you are using.  Lauren is the chair of the TIPS (Tort Trial & Insurance Practice Section of the American Bar Association) Standing Committee on Technology.
