Douglas County District Court will soon transition to a new case management system, which will temporarily disrupt the processing of online payments and electronic court document filings, according to a news release from the state judicial branch.

The court will begin switching over to the Kansas eCourt centralized case management system at 4 p.m. on March 29, and the new system is expected to be up and running by April 3, according to the Office of Judicial Administration’s news release on Friday. Courts will remain open during the transition, but attorneys will only be able to file documents on paper and any payments to the court must be made in cash or by paper check until the new system is operational.

Douglas County will go through the transition at the same time as Wyandotte and Shawnee Counties, according to the release. Courts in some parts of the state transitioned to the eCourt case management system in 2022, and some urban areas have yet to switch over, including Sedgwick County, which is scheduled to transition in August 2023, and Johnson County, whose transition date has yet to be announced.
