01/10/2019 Notice Regarding The Filing of Habeas Matters
Beginning February 1, 2019, newly initiated habeas matters, with a file date of 02/01/2019 and after, will be paperless and e-filable. Note that Case Initiation for habeas matters will continue to be filed on paper with the appropriate clerk's office. The case initiation documents will be scanned by the clerk's office, and a paperless, electronic file will be created. Documents subsequent to Case Initiation will be e-filable. As with most other civil case types, E-filing in e-filable Habeas cases is mandatory for attorneys and law firms (unless granted an exclusion from electronic services requirements) and optional for self-represented parties. Documents subsequent to case initiation must be filed electronically by attorneys via Superior Court E-Services subject to exceptions as outlined in the E-Filing Procedures and Technical Standards document . Most documents filed on paperless habeas cases will be accessible publically over the internet using the Civil/Family Case Look-up.

06/06/2018 Effective June 1, 2018, the clerk will no longer mail a paper copy of a Memorandum of Decision, Arbitrator’s Decision or Fact Finder’s Finding of Facts in civil cases to attorneys and law firms without an exclusion from electronic services requirements. A judicial notice delivered to the E-Services Inbox will notify all counsel and appearing parties that such documents are available online. The clerk will continue to mail paper copies of these documents to attorneys with an exclusion from electronic services requirements and to self-represented parties, but any enrolled appearing attorney or any self-represented party with electronic access to his or her file will also receive the judicial notice in the E-Services Inbox and can view the documents online.

     • Internet Explorer 11 or higher

10/02/2017 Notice: The Judicial Branch has created a new civil case type, A05 – AFFORDABLE HOUSING APPEALS, to identify affordable housing appeals. Any affordable housing appeal taken pursuant to Connecticut General Statutes Section 8-30g(f) should be identified as case type A05 in the electronic filing system. The use of this specific case type expedites the process of identifying and referring affordable housing appeals to the Land Use Litigation Docket, and allows the court to more efficiently track the filing and resolution of these appeals.  
08/30/2017 Reminder: Practice Book section 4-7 prohibits filing documents that contain personal identifying information with the court. Anyone filing documents and attachments with the court in civil, family, housing or small claims matters is required to omit, remove (redact), or black-out personal identifying information before filing any document unless the information is required by law or court order. Personal identifying information includes a person’s date of birth, mother’s maiden name, Social Security number, motor vehicle operator’s license number, or any financial account number, security code or personal identification number (PIN).

The clerk does not review documents for personal identifying information. Counsel and self-represented parties are reminded to review and redact all documents and attachments before filing them with the courts to prevent the disclosure of personal identifying information. Not doing so may result in penalties or sanctions being ordered by the court or in the personal liability of the filer.
 
08/16/2017 Effective August 24, 2017, several new features are being added to the E-Services Inbox. The E-Services Inbox will allow you to:

     • Set the default display to include the Preview by selecting General Settings from the menu and then Show Preview by Default and Update. The Inbox will then show the case names and additional information about a notice every time you open the E-Services Inbox.
     • Hide the Filter, Sort or Preview options at the top of the E-Services Inbox page if you do not need them.
     • Print or tag multiple notices at the same time by choosing a Multi Selection checkbox above the display of notices. This selection will activate checkboxes next to each item and a checkbox in the blue bar immediately about the notice to the left of Issued. You can choose the checkbox next to specific items that you want to print or tag, or you can choose the checkbox in the bar to print or tag all the notices in the E-Services Inbox at the same time. Once you have selected the items, you can choose Print Selected Items or Add Tag to Selected Items.
