The Ohio Supreme Court says attorneys are moving quickly to take advantage of a new electronic filing option.

The court says 70 percent of documents have been filed electronically since the court began allowing the process last month.

The filing is a change for the court, which previously required attorneys to mail documents or drop them off in person.

The court says 1,046 documents filed since Jan. 5 were sent electronically out of a total of 1,488.

The move puts the court in line with federal courts, which allow electronic filing.
