Clerk of the Courts

The Clerk's office performs various jobs and duties for the Supreme Court, Court of Appeals, the bar, and the public. It is responsible for filing cases, briefs, motions, petitions, and other documents that are presented to the courts for decision. Once the decisions have been made, the staff is also responsible for disseminating the opinions, orders, and per curiam orders to the attorneys, parties, trial court judges, public, and the press.

The Clerk is the financial officer of the courts and the office provides payroll and other financial services for the personnel of both courts and the committees of the Supreme Court. The office also administers the budgets of both courts as appropriated by the State Legislature. The Clerk's Office collects annual license fees for attorneys, court reporters, and professional associations, and is responsible for the funds collected.

The office provides information and guidance to judges, attorneys, and the public about appellate practice and the appellate process.
