Can File & Serve be used to start a new case or to file into existing cases?

Yes, File & Serve can be used to initiate cases, electronically file into existing cases, or electronically serve documents. Attorneys, support staff, and self-represented litigants can use the system to complete these tasks under their own usernames. SCLGR 30 sets out a list of documents that, due to technical or other reasons, cannot be electronically filed and instead must be conventionally filed.
