Maybe Floridians, lawyers, and the courts are getting better at dealing with working remotely with limitations in a COVID-19 world, but whatever the reason, court activity as measured by the filing of court documents rose noticeably in June and July, although not to pre-pandemic levels.

According to figures from the court system’s statewide e-filing portal, between 2 and 2.1 million documents were submitted in each of June and July, up from the 1.8 million filed each in April and May.

That’s still below the 2.2 to 2.3 million filed each in January, February, and March, and the 2.1 million filed in June 2019 and almost 2.3 million for July 2019.
