Comments Requested:
  The Second District Court of Appeals will accept public comments until April 1st on the following proposed amendment to the Local Rules of the Second Appellate District.  Specifically, the court of appeals welcomes comments on an amendment to Loc.App.R. 2.1 that will require the electronic filing of a notice of appeal in a trial court that has an electronic filing system.  The proposed rule requires a notice of appeal to be filed in accordance with the trial court’s electronic filing procedures but permits parties not represented by counsel to file a notice of appeal in paper form.
Although the Montgomery County Common Pleas Court, General Division, is currently the only trial court within the Second District’s six counties that has implemented an electronic filing system, the amended rule is intended to apply to any trial court’s electronic filing system adopted in the future.
This amendment applies to the electronic filing of a notice of appeal only; it does not permit the electronic filing of subsequent documents within the appellate case, such as motions and briefs.
Comments on the proposed amendment should be submitted in writing to:  Jim Nealon, Deputy Court Administrator, Second District Court of Appeals, 41 N. Perry Street, 5th Floor, Dayton, Ohio 45422, or  not later than April 1st.  Please include your full name and mailing address in any comments submitted by email.
