Effective July 14, 2014, the San Francisco Superior Court expanded its voluntary e-filing program to include the following 25 new types of civil cases:

  • Civil Harassment
  • Elder and Adult Dependent Abuse
  • Order of Examination
  • Petition for Change of Gender and for Issuance of New Birth Certificate
  • Petition for Name Change
  • Petition for Change of Name and Gender
  • Petition for Compromise of Claims
  • Unlawful Detainer – Commercial
  • Unlawful Detainer – Residential (Unlimited Jurisdiction)
  • Unlawful Detainer – Landlord/Tenant Residential (Unlimited Jurisdiction)
  • Unlawful Detainer – Drug-Related
  • Wrongful Eviction
  • Petition for Forfeiture/Asset Forfeiture

  • Rico
  • Complaint within Small Claims Jurisdictional Limit by Assignee of Record
  • General Negligence
  • Administrative Review
  • Other Civil Petitions
  • Other Exempt Status Complaints
  • Other non-exempt Complaints

These cases join the 16 other case types that were included in the court's January 2014 e-filing expansion. This most recent expansion means that now all civil case types are included in the court's voluntary e-filing program except unlawful detainer and small claims cases. (Note that asbestos, probate trust, and complex litigation cases are subject to mandatory e-filing.)

File & ServeXpress will continue to serve as an e-filing vendor, and the court has selected One Legal as an additional vendor.

The press release announcing the e-filing expansion can be found here. Details on the rules and procedures governing e-filing can be found in San Francisco Local Rule 2.10.
