The Electronic Communications and Transaction Act 25 of 2002 is an effective piece of legislation that strives to put South African law on the map of the evolving global world. However, some provisions have not yet been recognised in civil proceedings, particularly section 27 of the ECT Act. Although some rules attempt to embrace e-technology, such as Rule 4A of the Uniform Rules of Court, this is not sufficiently compliant with e-technology. The CaseLines system implemented by the judiciary seeks to enforce this section to a certain extent but a lacuna has been identified and must be modified. This article analysis the CaseLines system with reference to section 27 of the ECT Act and provides solutions and recommendations.
