LegalXML Electronic Court Filing Specification 5.0 Draft Announced

In the first major update since 2013, the Oasis-Open LegalXML Electronic Court Filing (ECF) Technical Committee has announced version 5 for sixty-day public review.  Since the standard is the most widely used electronic filing standard, this is a significant advancement.

The official announcement with links to supporting documentation is posted at:

Highlights of the version 5 draft are:

1. An expanded scope of functionality including:

  • Scheduling of court hearings
  • Cancellation of filings
  • Document stamping
  • Electronic delivery to process servers and registered agents

2. Better interoperability through:

  • New rules for extensions (through [NIEM] augmentations)
  • New rules for content references.
  • Conformance with the 4.0 version of the National Information Exchange Model ([NIEM]).

3. Better scalability though:

  • A new Court Policy Major Design Element (MDE) that supports multiple Filing Review MDEs.
  • Better management of dynamic code lists through conformance with the NIEM code list specification.

The review is open until November 27, 2017
