The Kansas Supreme Court has taken the first step toward creating a statewide system for the electronic filing of cases and documents.
The court announced Thursday that it has appointed a 32-member advisory committee to study how such a system could be set up.
Justice Marla Luckert is serving as chairwoman and Justice Dan Biles, as vice chairman. Its members include district court judges, court administrators and legislators.
The group plans to have its first meeting June 3 at the Kansas Judicial Center in Topeka.
Supreme Court spokesman Ron Keefover said the advisory committee will study how the state could set up a system to allow attorneys to file their documents from anywhere in Kansas.
