WHAT'S HAPPENING IN THE CIRCUIT CLERK'S OFFICE
Preparing for eFiling
June 3, 2013 will bring an impressive new era to the Scott County Circuit Court system as we introduce eFiling. Plans are under way now as the Courts eFiling Management Team meets regularly to make decisions regarding the implementation process. This team is comprised of Christy Hency, Circuit Clerk, David Dolan, Presiding Judge, Scott Horman, Associate Circuit Judge, Nancy Weissmueller, Circuit Clerk's Office Manager, and Supervisors Jamie Baker, Theresa Siebert and Stacey Naile. January 4, 2012, the Scott County Circuit Clerk's Office began scanning documents in a step towards e-filing. eFiling has proven to be a cost effective way of processing business in the courts. As our implementation deadline approaches, Missouri's Office of State Courts Administrator will be working with our local Scott County Bar Association to provide training for attorneys and their staff. There will be little to no change for self represented litigants as eFiling is rolled out. Please contact Christy M. Hency, Scott County Circuit Clerk at 573-545-3596, or by email at email@example.com, for additional information related to this transition.
