Prisoner E-Filing

The United States District Court for the Southern District of Illinois reached an agreement with the Illinois Department of Corrections to allow the electronic transmission of prisoner pleadings to the court for electronic filing by court personnel. The Southern District of Illinois, the Central District of Illinois, and the Northern District of Illinois have now partnered to expand this project. Digital senders have been placed at 17 IDOC facilities for submitting filings electronically to the three district courts.

The documents below are posted as a resource for other courts and state corrections departments who might be interested in this process. Additional information is available from the website of the Central District of Illinois.
