Supreme Court to Require Electronic Filing of Compensation Claims

The Tennessee Supreme Court is now requiring electronic submissions of all interpreter invoices as well as compensation claims for attorneys representing indigent clients. Effective July 1, the order requires that “all claims for attorney compensation and expenses shall be submitted utilizing the system established by the AOC for electronic submission.” The Administrative Office of the Courts began development of the electronic filing system in 2010. Users have been phased in over several years and the system has been used on a routine basis since early 2012.
