The Tennessee Appellate Court Clerk’s Office will install a new digital tracking system for the appellate courts later this month, allowing for greater access to information for lawyers, litigants and the general public. The new case management system will provide online and mobile access to digital copies of motions, orders, opinions and judgments at no cost. The installation process will begin at 4:30 p.m. CDT Aug. 21. New filings submitted to any of the appellate courts after that time will be filed on Aug. 26. This will extend by two business days filing deadlines for any matter with the appellate courts. The Tennessee Supreme Court has entered an order declaring the clerk’s office “inaccessible” for purposes of filing documents on Aug. 22 and 23. Exceptions will be made for emergency motions. The AOC reported the news today.
