ATTENTION IMPORTANT NOTICE The First Judicial District is experiencing difficulties with its e-mail services. Consequently, all e-mail notifications sent as a result of electronic filings are delayed. If a filing has been submitted electronically, an e-mail notification of acceptance or rejection may not be sent immediately, so filers should monitor the Civil Electronic Filing System for status of filings. Upon acceptance, filers should also serve hard copies of accepted filings on all interested parties until the e-mail notification issues are resolved.

The FJD appreciates your patience as it works towards a solution to the problem.
