E-filing downtime on Tuesday, July 23rd. Here is what you need to know.

--Updated 4:24pm 7/23/19--

The e-file manager informed us about 4:20pm that the e-file system was back up and running. Please review the information below for assurance that allowance has been made in the trial rule for prolonged e-file outages.

Previous post:

Beginning at roughly 3:15pm on Tuesday, July 23rd, the State's side of the Indiana e-filing system is experiencing sporadic outages and issues, thus preventing users from e-filing on most cases. At the time of this posting, we have received confirmation of the issues from the Office of Judicial Administration and E-file manager noting they are working to resolve the issue but have no ETA at the time of this posting. We will update this blog when the issue appears resolved. 

If you are reading this before midnight on 7/23 and have a deadline today, please note that Trial Rule 86(N)(1), essentially provides for a one-day extension when a lengthy e-filing system outage prevents filers from meeting a deadline.

We expect that the Trial Courts will all be aware of the scope and timing of this statewide outage via direct communication from Trial Court Technology. However, if the court you are working with requires a statement from Doxpop to attach as an exhibit to the motion described in TR 86(N)(1)(d), please let us know and we'll be happy to supply documentation in support of your motion. (Simply attaching a screen print of this blog post may be sufficient.)

On the appellate side, take a look at Rule 68(M)(1)(d), which appears to be nearly identical to the Trial Court rule on this topic.
