The Michigan State Bar recently published a list of changes to state rules, including Rule 2.107. A-F are unchanged, however, (G) goes into length about electronic service. Here it is in whole: (G) Notwithstanding any other provision of this rule, until further order of the Court, all service of process except for case initiating must be preformed using electronic means (e-filing where available, email, or fax, where available) to the greatest extent possible. Email transmission does not require agreement by the other party(s) but should otherwise comply as much as possible with the provisions of subsection (C)(4).
