Anyone filing a civil or domestic court cases in Marion County will have to do so electronically.

The Circuit Clerk's Office implemented full e-filing of these cases on Dec. 1. The initiative is part of the West Virginia Supreme Court's pilot electronic filing project.

Marion County kicked off the project in December 2013 when a lawsuit was filed electronically. More than a dozen other counties are expected to begin e-filing cases in 2015.

Online Information Services provides the filing service. A consultant of the company, Barbara Core, tells The Times West Virginian that attorneys can file documents and forms from any location electronically.

Core says judges can view motions and grant or deny them without leaving their offices.
