Docket-Online is NOT a substitution for e-filing of pleadings or motions with
AZTurbocourt, the Superior Court or CM/ECF E-Filing System. Where required, Efiling
with AZTurbocourt or CM/ECF requires that each attorney be specifically
registered and provides that by e-filing a pleading, the Attorney of Record is certifying its
signature as required by Rule 11.
Docket-Online has numerous advantages which the Superior Court and
AZTurbocourt e-filing systems do not offer. The court e-filing systems only permit filing
of certain pleadings, motions, and orders. Docket-Online is intended to permit filing of
all records, including discovery requests, disclosure statements, notices of depositions,
draft stipulations, trial and deposition exhibits and deposition transcripts themselves.
For those users familiar with AZTurbocourt, Maricopa County Superior Court /
CM/ECF e-filing process, Docket-Online will be quick and easy to learn with one
exception. The formatting and scanning problems which at times cause the rejection of
a record with the court’s e-filing systems do not occur. Docket-Online is much more
user friendly and accepts nearly all forms of electronic documents.
Available Documents for Posting / Viewing / Printing
Local rules of court vary greatly but generally provide that only a small portion of
the documents and records used for civil litigation actually be filed with the Clerk of the
Court. Discovery related documents, Rule 26 / 26.1 Disclosure Statements, Notices of
Deposition, Notices of Service of Discovery Papers, Uniform and Non-Uniform
Interrogatories, Requests for Production of Documents, and Requests for Admissions,
hearing and trial transcripts, Notices of Hearing, many records relating to Supplemental
Proceedings -- essentially those documents which comprise the vast majority of a
complex case are NOT filed with the Clerk of the Court and therefore are never
available for on-line viewing.
In addition, documents and records which would be frequently used during
litigation, contract documents, deeds of trust, specifications, mechanic liens, and
deposition and trial exhibits, are only filed with the Clerk at the time of trial – a small
window of time for when the record is actually required for use.
Docket-Online is designed to allow the parties and attorneys of record to literally
post any frequently used or required document or record. In a Mechanic’s Lien
foreclosure case involving dozens of parties, one common document required, but
frequently not available to all parties are the actual recorded lien documents, prime
contract document agreement, and the various subcontract agreements of the parties.
Every single one of these records can quickly be posted on line and thereafter forever
available again for immediate access. In other complex litigation the security
agreements, promissory notes, deeds of trust, and other materials – critical to the case,
are simply not available to the parties except when attached as exhibits to a Motion or
Instead of having access to only a limited number of records available through
the current court systems, every material document, pleading, discovery request, or
exhibit can now be instantly accessed throughout the course of the case proceedings.
Parties who may appear in the case late, also can avoid the hours of time associated
with having to recreate and obtain copies of earlier answers, cross claims, counterclaims
and other pleadings, prior minute entries and court rulings, and discovery
exchanges occurring prior to their first appearance. The cost and time savings are
IMMEDIATE and SIGNIFICANT.
