Alabama Dept. of Revenue v. Frederick, [Ms. 2130711, Oct. 24, 2014] __ So. 3d __ (Ala. Civ. App. 2014). A notice
of appeal to an Alabama appellate court cannot be filed electronically.
In dismissing the appeal that the Department of Revenue attempted to file
electronically on the last day for an appeal, the Court of Civil Appeals
discusses the applicable authorities establishing that a notice of appeal
cannot be electronically filed, including "a September 6, 2012, document
entitled 'Administrative Policies and Procedures for Electronic Filing
in the Civil Division of the Alabama Unified Judicial System' ('the
Electronic Filing Policy Manual') [which] governs electronic filing,"
and the information contained in the electronic filing system that warns
users not to electronically file notices of appeal.
