It's easy, they simply adopt the federal court system, they don't have to reinvent the wheel or spend a fortune (But you know, instead they will spend a fortune and blow it). Easy to set up a system whereby for each court file there is a secure website; documents to be filed can be uploaded to it, all parties are notified via an email or text alert, judge or master assigned can access all documents, can print them, can post decisions, etc. All this filing of bound documents, cirlox, etc. belongs in pre-2000.

An estate trustee who took an ‘egregious' position in litigation has been ordered to personally pay more than $140,000 in costs. Will this ruling serve as an appropriate caution to executors on how they conduct themselves in litigation?
Yes, this will remind trustees of the potential exposure of significant awards being made against them personally.
No, it’s unlikely this ruling will dissuade executors from engaging in unreasonable conduct during litigation.
