Criminal E-filing in Anne Arundel County

As of August 3, 2015, mandatory e-filing will begin for attorneys filing in Anne Arundel County in criminal and traffic cases. This includes District Court, Circuit Court, Court of Special Appeals, and Court of Appeals.

To help attorneys and their support staff get ready, the Maryland Judiciary hosted criminal e-filing preview sessions the first week of June 2015. Topics included the e-filing portal, the new MDEC secure portal, victim and witness entry application, and the secure Case Search functionalities. Approximately 280 attorneys and support staff from the Office of the State’s Attorney, Office of the Public Defender and private firms took part in the event. To help you prepare, the Judiciary offers webinars and tutorials on e-filing.
