    Hon. Michael K. Jeanes
    Clerk of the Superior Court for Maricopa County
    620 West Jackson Street, Suite 3017
    Phoenix, Arizona 85003

    Michael Jeanes, Clerk of the Superior Court in and for Maricopa County, submits the following comment to Presiding Judge Janet Barton’s request to amend Rule 2.8 of the Superior Court Local Rules for Maricopa County.

    For the reasons stated in the request, this office recommends the Court’s adoption of the amendment. Allowing the Clerk to distribute notice to parties who have authorized electronic communications will improve the speed and reliability of reaching the court’s customers while reducing costs. The Clerk’s Office will continue sending paper to parties who have not consented to receive electronic notices.

    Thank you to Judge Barton for presenting this request and to the Court for its consideration. Feel free to contact this office with further questions.
