The statewide E-Filing Portal continued its downward submission trend in October and November, according to the Florida Courts E-Filing Authority.

Meeting December 12, the board reviewed the October and November Portal filing statistics. Total documents filed through the Portal were 2.53 million (in 1.73 million submissions) in October. That number was up 7% from September’s total, however, the November numbers paint a much different story.

Total documents filed through the Portal were 2.35 million (in 1.60 million submissions) in November. November’s filing data was down nearly 8% from October’s submissions and down nearly 19% from August’s record high of 1.97 million submissions.
