Hearing Notices and Use of Court E-Mail Addresses
The Civil, Criminal, and Family Divisions of the Caledonia, Essex, Franklin, Grand Isle, Lamoille, Rutland, Washington, and Windham Units will begin sending hearing notices by email pursuant to Administrative Order No. 45 and the attached Court Administrator’s Directive. The official start date for each Unit is shown in the attached Directive.
You have already registered your email addresses in eCabinet and do not need to take further action. However, you may update your email addresses at any time by editing your eCabinet profile at https://efiling.eservices.crt.state.vt.us/Default.aspx. If you need assistance/training with editing your profile, you may contact the Judiciary Helpdesk at 1-802-828-4357 or JUD-Helpdesk@state.vt.us.
TESTING DATES: The email system will be tested for two business days prior to the official start date for each Unit. During its testing period, each Unit will deliver your hearing notices by email and U.S. Mail.
OFFICIAL START DATE: Beginning on the official start date as shown in the attached Directive, your hearing notices will be delivered only by email.
USE OF COURT EMAIL ADDRESSES
When the Judiciary delivers a hearing notice or other document by email, please do not “reply” or otherwise use the court email addresses to contact the court or to forward any pleadings or other documents to the courts at this time. Protocols are being developed as to the appropriate use of court e-mail addresses, and you will be notified when the protocols and any necessary rule changes are finalized. We want to ensure that processes are in place for a prompt response to any e-mails sent to the courts.
Thank you again for your help as we work to increase efficiencies to better serve you and the public.
