Derek Molter Quoted in Indiana Lawyer: "Courier Services Remain, But Diminish with New Technology"

Derek MolterIce Miller partner Derek Molter was quoted in the Indiana Lawyer article, "Courier Services Remain, But Diminish with New Technology."

The article included:

As a litigator, Derek Molter handles his fair share of paperwork, but he’s still seen his need for courier service diminish. E-filing is the main driver behind this change, Molter said. Still, in his practice, couriers have not become completely extinct.

For example, some administrative agencies and other administrative functions don’t yet support e-filing, the Ice Miller partner said. And, Molter added, not all states have adopted e-filing in their courts. He also litigates outside of Indiana, so his out-of-state work can necessitate the services of a courier.

“Even where there is e-filing, there can still be a need for courier services,” Molter continued. That need might occur when a court requires the submission of a courtesy copy of a document, even if that document has been electronically filed. Or, a court might mandate that certain documents have an original signature.

Sometimes lawyers still serve discovery via hand-delivery, though Molter said that’s not his practice. But when it does happen — for example, in an attempt to shorten the amount of time for a response — a courier is often employed.
