TOPEKA—The Kansas Supreme Court today issued Administrative Order 2023-CC-073 declaring court clerk offices inaccessible for electronic filings through Sunday, October 15.

The Supreme Court took this action to give the judicial branch time to examine a security incident that has disrupted access to court systems.

Courts will remain open and continue to operate, but documents cannot be submitted to the court through the Kansas Courts eFiling system. By declaring the courts inaccessible for efiling purposes, certain filing deadlines may be extended under applicable rules and statutes.

Courts will accept paper filings and filings by fax. Fax filings cannot be accepted if payment is required. Courts also cannot accept electronic payments, whether by credit card, electronic check, or another electronic method.

The order applies to the Supreme Court, Court of Appeals, and district courts in all counties except Johnson County. Johnson County currently operates on an efiling and case management system used only by that county.

The network issues faced by the judicial branch starting earlier today have interrupted user access to several online systems, including:

  • Kansas Courts eFiling, which accepts electronically filed documents.

  • Kansas Protection Order Portal, which accepts electronically filed documents.

  • Kansas District Court Public Access Portal, which allows searching district court case information.

  • Appellate Case Inquiry System, which allows searching appellate court case information.

  • Kansas Attorney Registration, which allows searching for an attorney by name or bar number.

  • Kansas online marriage license application. People will need to apply on paper at the courthouse.

  • Central Payment Center, which operates in the Office of Judicial Administration, will not be able to process disbursements on behalf of district courts.

  • Kansas eCourt case management system, which district courts use to process cases.
