State Courts’ Notification System to Start

05/30/2018 - According to the RI Administrative Office of State Courts, a pilot program for an electronic notification system (eNotify) is now ready to be implemented for all attorneys. eNotification messages are computer generated and transmitted by the case management system upon the entry of a docketable event or the scheduling of a hearing in a given case and are sent to attorneys who are entered in the case at the e-mail address on file with the Supreme Court attorney registration. eNotify will begin on Monday, June 18, 2018 at 8:00 a.m. The system is programmed to update and send out messages every fifteen (15) minutes. The messages will identify the case and provide the event date and event description.

An eNotification message is for informational purposes only and does not constitute official notice from the court, is not entered into the court record, and shall not be relied upon by recipients for any official purpose. Attorneys may access the case(s) on the Rhode Island Judiciary Public Portal. Case access on the Public Portal is determined by security and case type.

Please see the corresponding Supreme Court order here regarding the eNotify system.
