Here is what you need to know about the Odyssey downtime that affected e-filing on Thursday, Feb. 13th.

Update 4:20pm Feb 14th: The state has confirmed all connection issues between Odyssey and the E-file system have been fixed.

Original Post Below:

Beginning at roughly 10:45am on Thursday, February 13th, the Odyssey Case Management system began experiencing sporadic outages and issues, thus preventing the e-file system from being able to retrieve some cases. We have received confirmation of the issues from the Office of Judicial Administration that the issue extended through the end of the working day. At the time of this posting, it appears that the issue has been resolved overnight but we still await confirmation. 

If you are reading this and missed a deadline yesterday, 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 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.
