Small Claims cases can now be filed through the FCCC eFiling Portal; both single cases as well as those that are to be filed as a “block” per AO79-8. For Block filing, each case will still need to be filed individually, but there is now a new case type of “Small Claims (Block Filings)” (see Figure 1.)
Figure 1. Case Type “Small Claims (Block Filings)”
Each case within a “block” will require a “Small Claims Batch Cover Sheet” document to be submitted. This cover sheet will allow the attorney to identify which cases will be filed in a block. The attorney must specify the style and type of each case in the block (see Figure 2.) The “Small Claims Batch Cover Sheet” form and Statements of Claim forms can be found here on the Civil Court Services page in the list of Civil Court Forms.
