I worry about the privacy in Divorce and custody matters when I hear the court talking about transparancy. I like efiling. I hope every county in Texas allows for efiling, but I also hope that as we do so, we have ways of protecting the privacy of Texas families going through difficult times. We have to use initials in appeals cases, but in trial courts all the information is madated, including partial social security numbers, and sometimes full social security numbers.

Is this quote not disturbing?

"Counties will not be able to offer any alternative means of e-filing, such as Harris County’s free fax filing, “except in the event of an emergency,” says the high court’s order."

How is going from efficient and free (i.e. what is available in, for example, Harris County District Courts) to fee-based to be considered "progress"? Do you approve of this pro-inflationary policy? Is somebody receiving kickbacks from the proposed centralized system who coincidentally donated to some Justices' electoral campaigns?
