When it comes to paperwork, the court system definitely has its hands full. Each case generates voluminous amounts of data that often must be shared with other courts, law enforcement, state agencies and other parts of the judicial system. The State of Indiana is in the midst of an ambitious project to equip all state trial courts with a uniform case management system.

Indiana Supreme Court Justice Frank Sullivan, Jr. recently spoke on our Eagan campus on the importance of automating judicial case management, particularly in a time of limited state resources.  Justice Sullivan chairs the Court’s Judicial Technology and Automation Committee (JTAC), which focuses on improving technology for Indiana courts, clerks and law enforcement. In a presentation to Thomson Reuters employees, Justice Sullivan discussed the technology initiatives as well as JTAC’s experiences implementing them.
