Our planned migration to our new web site has begun. The first group to be migrated will be the Judiciary. If you are a member of this selected group, once you login in you will be taken to our new home via a redirect. Your login will be the same as before and the new site is ready to be used.

Once you are logged in to the new site, you can go to the settings page and set up the environment to your personal choices. You can personalize your views so that the site accommodates the way you would like to work.

One of the things that you will need to do is to add your email address, if it is not already there. Just enter your Groupwise email address. If you do not do this then you will not be able to send emails from within the system.

For the rest of us, the migration will be further out on the timeline as we complete the transfer of all the functionality for each of our groups. This site will stay active for as long as it is necesssary for the transition of all groups to be completed.

The Judicial Website, originally constructed in 2002, was built for the purpose of allowing all of the members of the Judicial community to have access to information and functional tools that would enable them to more efficiently work together. All users are assigned rights and roles which controls the security of the site. All users are assigned usernames and passwords to further secure the access. Although the site is supported and housed by the Clerk, the users determine the functional requirements. We are constantly responding to new requests from users and as the community grows, so does the complexity of the site. The only limitation and future potential of this resource is our collective imagination.
Users of this site currently include Judges and their staff, Clerk Staff, Attorneys and their staff, and Agencies. We have tried to bring everyone together on this site so we can provide a common access point, and functional tools that everyone can use to their individual benefit and well as to the benefit of others.
The site is designed with a tabbed structure. There are tabs for the judges, the clerk, agencies, and attorneys. In addition, there are shared tabs, such as dockets, and search engines that everyone has access to. Under each tab there are many functional pages that have been designed over the years, with the help of the users. Under the HELP tab, there is a section on Judicial Website Training, which provides PDF documents that give everyone a comprehensive overview and specific directions on how to use the site.

Electronic-Service from Clerk to Attorney

As the efiling initiative continues, efficiencies will be gained as more and more functionality is implemented. The initial emphasis was on opening the statewide efiling portal to civil case filing. This was followed with criminal and traffic efiling in October of this year. As with any new process involving complicated workflows and large numbers of varied users, there have been growing pains. The learning curve is, however, beginning to flatten out as Clerks’ Offices, the filing attorneys, and the judiciary begin to understand all the ramifications of migrating from paper to electronic image.

As part of its version releases, the portal recently began providing eservice capability for notifications between attorneys, an obvious requirement of law and for migrating to a paperless workflow. But as most of you are aware, this is only one aspect of eservice that needs to be implemented to eliminate all of the current paper flows. It is common practice for attorneys to communicate with judges by sending them proposed orders. This is frequently a bi-directional effort and to some extent has already begun migrating to email. This issue has begun to receive much attention because very often proposed orders are efiled as attachments to motions or separately by attorneys, and then Clerks must figure out how to get these orders to judges for review. In many courthouses, the method employed is to print the proposed order and for it and the file to be delivered to the judge. Since the goal is paperless, this is not the desired outcome and a better solution has to evolve.

There is a third component to eservice and that is filled by Clerks. Currently, we send out thousands of notices each month to parties as part of the normal course of business. We too would like to be able to take advantage of going paperless and providing, to the extent possible, these notifications electronically. And that brings me to the point of this posting.

When you complete the logon to the Judicial Website, if we do not currently have PRIMARY and SECONDARY emails for you, you will be directed to the attorney My Profile - Editable section of the site that we built to allow you to keep your information on file current. We ask your indulgence for this inconvenience, but by providing us this information, we will be able to provide better and more efficient service in the near future.

Thank you for working with us, and feel free to use the “Report” selections on the Help tab of the Judicial Website, once you’ve logged in, to let us know if you have any suggestions or concerns.
