TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW)-- The Kansas Supreme Court was awarded more than $200,000 in federal grant money to install an electronic case filing system across the state.

E-filing will allow individuals to submit legal documents online instead of having to bring paper copies directly to the courthouse.

Chief Justice Lawton Nuss says the new system will streamline the filing process and ease the burden on the clerks, who typically handle between 400 and 500 thousand legal documents a year.

Shawnee County will implement e-filing this fall.
