The EOIR explained that the launch of the electronic filing pilot program at the San Diego Immigration Court begins the first phase of the EOIR Courts & Appeals System (ECAS) initiative. The goal of the EACS initiative “is to phase out paper filing and processing, and to retain all records and case-related documents in electronic format.”

For the time being, the program is available for legal representatives practicing in the San Diego Immigration Court “on a voluntary basis.” The EOIR will expand the electronic filing pilot program to the following immigration courts in 2018 [PDF version]:

- Atlanta Immigration Court (August)
- Denver Immigration Court (August)
- Baltimore Immigration Court (September)
- Charlotte Immigration Court (September)
- York Immigration Court (October)

Furthermore, the EOIR plants to extend the electronic filing pilot program to the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) in 2018. In 2019, the EOIR plans to expand the EACS pilot to all remaining immigration Courts.
