Implementation of the CaseLines system in the Gauteng Division of the High Court

January 29th, 2020

By Nomfundo Jele

The Gauteng Division of the High Court, Pretoria and Johannesburg, is implementing a digital/electronic case management and litigation system called CaseLines. The full implementation of the system will take effect from 27 January.

The Judge President issued Practice Directive 1 of 2020 in terms whereof the Registrars are directed to create cases on CaseLines. Legal representatives will then upload the necessary case record and/or relevant documents onto the cases created on the system. Please note that no hardcopy pleadings or other documents will be allowed on cases designated for the CaseLines system.

The Judge President also issued a CaseLines Quick Reference Guide.

This is an important Practice Directive and legal practitioners are urged to be fully acquainted with it.
