The St. Lucie County Clerk's office is filing foreclosure and civil cases at a much faster rate now, thanks to "e-file".
More than 65-thousand documents have been filed electronically since April 1st of this year.
In fact, 90 percent of all civil cases are now e-filed, dramatically reducing paper use, and cutting most processing times in half.
The clerk's office estimates this change will save about 100-thousand dollars a year.
