New Service by E-Mail Rule Postponed Until September 1, 2012

The Florida Supreme Court issued an opinion addressing mandatory e-mail service on Thursday, June 21, 2012, with an effective date of July 1, 2012. Apparently that was not nearly enough notice for some firms and a corrected opinion and correction notice were issued a week after the initial opinion revising the effective date to September 1, 2012.

As it stands now, e-mail service becomes MANDATORY on September 1, 2012 in civil, probate, small claims, and family law divisions of the trial courts, as well as in all appellate cases. (E-mail service in criminal, traffic and juvenile matters is not mandatory until October 1, 2013.).

Links to the corrected opinion and the correction notice are provided below.
