As far as the U.S. Courts are concerned, PDF is on life support, says DocsCorp. The company is offering a webinar on PDF/A on April 29, 2011 for firms to learn to create documents that comply with court requirements.
In its posting on the Legal IT Professionals website, DocsCorp says, “Many courts have announced that law firms can now file case documents with the CM/ECF in PDF/A, while others such as the U.S. District Court in Pittsburgh has stated that ‘ALL Court ECF filings uploaded on or after January 1, 2012, MUST be in PDF/A format.’”
