(Oklahoma City-AP) -- Federal courts in Oklahoma are going online.

Federal Judge Robin Cauthron issued the first paperless order in Oklahoma yesterday with the click of a mouse.

The new Case Management and Electronic Case Files system also allows attorneys to file court documents from their desks. And anyone with a computer and Internet access can view federal cases at a cost of 7 cents per page.

The system is already being used in 25 federal district courts nationwide and is to become mandatory next May.
