U.S. tour brings Chilean Supreme Court President to Eagan, MN
The youngest ever elected president of the Supreme Court of Chile, Sergio Manuel Muñoz Gajardo, recently braved the frigid Minnesota temperatures to visit the Thomson Reuters Eagan campus. The Honorable Judge Muñoz was on a U.S. tour, visiting a number of world-class organizations, and specifically requested a visit to Thomson Reuters.
His motivation for visiting the U.S. was two-fold:
- As a leader in bringing technology into the courts of Chile, he was interested in learning how Thomson Reuters supports its customers through the implementation of information and communication technologies (ICTs), both in the management of the judiciary and in providing enhanced access to justice to citizens.
- More specifically, he was interested in learning about C-Track and Thomson Reuters Court Management Solutions‘ great success in improving and transforming internal court operations and external public-facing court services in the U.S. and other countries.
Regarded as one of the most beloved judges in Chile, Muñoz has continually voiced that his focus is on serving the citizens of his country. “Our job is to put people at the center of concerns,” Muñoz said. He has been involved in managing plans to modernize Chilean courts, and has actively participated in the process of digital modernization of the Santiago Court of Appeals and the Supreme Court.
Muñoz and Victor Molina, technology project manager with the Chilean Judiciaries, were given a private tour of the Eagan data center, as well as a demonstration of C-Track, before concluding their day with a visit to meet Supreme Court Justices at the Minnesota Supreme Court.
“This was a very exciting opportunity for the Thomson Reuters Court Management Solutions group to present our solution and our technology expertise to such a respected leader in the Latin American judiciary,” said Manoj Jain, vice president of the Government segment of Thomson Reuters. “As Thomson Reuters continues to transform into a more solutions-based and globally-focused company, such opportunities to host international justices will be more important than ever.”
