After several years of effort, the Electronic Court Filing (ECF) Technical Committee of OASIS LegalXML is issuing its first Committee Specification Draft of ECF 5.0 for a 60-day public review. MTG partner Jim Cabral is co-chair of the committee, and has been very active in this effort. This draft is an important milestone, leading to the next major version of the standard that has been widely adopted by courts and solution providers across the country. The specification details how XML is used to transmit legal documents among court participants, including courts, attorneys, self-represented litigants, and others involved in legal proceedings.
The specification is available for public review and comment. You can find the announcement at the ECF Announcement page on the OASIS Website.
