CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - All New Hampshire courts that accept small claims cases have now switched to an online system.

The transition to paperless processing began July with two pilot programs in Plymouth and Concord and by mid-December had been completed at all 32 district divisions that accept small claims filings.

Administrative Judge Edwin Kelly says it was a massive undertaking to put workstations and kiosks in 32 court lobbies across the state. He says the goal has been to make small claims more accessible and transparent, and that feedback so far has been positive.

In 2013, more than 13,000 small claims were filed and nearly 8,900 claims were re-opened. Under state law, individuals or entities can bring a small claims action for up to $7,500. That amount will increase to $10,000 in July.
