This is a public notice.  The Athens Common Pleas Court is accepting public comment for amendments to the Athens Common Pleas Court Local Rules which includes rules for electronic filing recently implemented by the Athens County Common Pleas Clerk of Courts.  Letter re Athens Common Pleas Local Rules 
Below are  proposed final versions of:
Generally, for the local rules I've combined the last 14 years of amendments into a single document.  There are some proposed changes to bring them current as well.  The highlighted areas and strikeouts are proposed changes in the local rules.  At the end I suggest the addition of Rule 33 which adopts the clerks table of fees for any costs not specifically set forth in the local rules.   
The electronic filing rules are new to address the addition of e-filing which has been added to the clerk's filing system in 2019. 
The attached are submitted for comment through July 25, 2020 at gmccarthy@athensoh.org. 
Thank you.
