Vol. 11, No. 1 January 2015
Clerk’s Office 2015
Happy New Year! This year the Clerk’s office will continue to advance its
services and accessibility for customers of the superior court. Aging systems
will be updated and refreshed to improve the speed and accuracy of processing records
and financial transactions in the office.
The Supreme Court will expand or increase its goals of advancing
electronic filing and access to records. The Clerk’s office plays a critical
part in providing input and feedback as these local and statewide initiatives are
developed. Look for more opportunities to e-file and find information online
throughout 2015. Additionally, the Supreme Court created a task force to review
and update the rules of civil procedure, with the goal of submitting proposed
changes by January 2016.
