Case eFiling System

Any person wishing to file case documents electronically must first complete an Electronic Document Filing Authorization Form. This form must be physically filed with the Document Control Center of the Clerk's Office. The form includes instructions on where and how to send it. No document can be filed electronically until the Clerk of the Commission issues a password that the user may change, as needed. The form and password serve two purposes for the Commission's Document Control Center:
  • The password confirms that a document being submitted electronically is being sent by an authorized filer.
  • The form assures that the filer’s actual signature is on file with the Clerk’s Office as required by SCC rule (5 VAC 5-20-20. Good faith pleading and practice).
Before submitting a document electronically, filers are urged to review the Electronic Filing Procedures and the User Guide.
