Effective October 24, 2005, the Delaware Supreme Court has begun accepting appeal documents electronically (eFiling) using the File & ServeXpress system. The Court is the first appellate court in the nation to require electronic filing using the File & ServeXpress system which has been the e-filing provider for the Court of Chancery and Superior Court in Delaware. The implementation of the e-filing project will be in phases with the first phase consisting of those civil cases appealed from the Court of Chancery and the Superior Court that were previously e-filed in those courts. Over the remaining phases of the project, all Supreme Court matters will eventually be filed electronically.
