The Florida Commission on Access to Civil Justice held its first meeting on Friday, Jan. 16th in Tallahasee. The meeting was open to the public and broadcast live on the Florida Supreme Court’s Gavel to Gavel website at http://wfsu.org/gavel2gavel/.

Recognizing that economic disparity threatens access to a fair and impartial judicial system, Florida Supreme Court Chief Justice Jorge Labarga issued an administrative order establishing the commission in November, 2014. The 27-member commission includes leaders from all three branches of Florida government, The Florida Bar, The Florida Bar Foundation, civil legal aid providers, the business community, and other stakeholders, who will work in a coordinated effort to identify and remove economic barriers to civil justice.

e-Portal Proposed Orders

Effective January 1, 2015, the Court has agreed that the Clerk in Escambia County will not accept proposed orders through the e-Portal. This temporary restriction does not apply to any other pleadings, motions, notices, or other filings which the e-Portal is capable of accepting. Counsel should check the preferences of the assigned judge posted here on the First Judicial Circuit Website at the JUDGES tab. Most judges will prefer that proposed orders be submitted either by hand delivery through the run, by U.S. mail, or by e-mail in Word format to the presiding judge’s judicial assistant. For those judges who do not have specific preferences on the website as to proposed orders, counsel may transmit the proposed orders by any of the aforementioned methods.
