James M. Paulino II, an attorney in Goldberg Segalla’s Business and Commercial Practice Group, was interviewed by the Associated Press on New York’s recent expansion of its electronic filing system for civil cases. Jimmy is currently Chair of the New York State Bar Association’s Subcommittee on E-Filing.
“It makes the world an easier place to navigate and it saves time and money and trees,” Jimmy told AP. “It brings litigation to the 21st century.” He also praised the system for allowing free public access to most information. “Access to the system should be free,” he said. “Our courts should be open, and electronic filing is not a money maker for the state.”
