OCCC Drop Boxes to be removed April 1
Please be advised that, effective April 1, 2023, the Office of the Circuit Court Clerk’s drop boxes for court filings and paperwork at the entrances of the Louis D. Brandeis Hall of Justice and the Jefferson County Judicial Center will be removed. The drop boxes were installed in response to COVID-19 safety protocols in 2020, and the applicable Supreme Court Administrative Orders have since been rescinded.
Attorneys are highly encouraged to utilize the Kentucky Court of Justice’s eFiling system, which provides electronic verification of filing and allows images of the documents to be displayed in CourtNet 2.0, or the respective OCCC front counters that are open during normal business hours.
The drop box in the District Criminal-Traffic Attorney Room (HOJ 1127) will remain in place, and it will continue to be available 24x7x365.
