Hamilton County to start using Odyssey

Back to TopE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Hamilton County will join nearly 40 other courts and 13 counties when it begins using Odyssey, a statewide case management system provided by the Indiana Supreme Court. Odyssey will connect the Hamilton County courts and clerk to the network of other county courts, clerks, law enforcement, and state agencies.

It also makes court information available to the public online for free.

Indiana Supreme Court Chief Justice Randall T. Shepard, Justice Frank Sullivan Jr., Hamilton Superior Court Judge William J. Hughes and Hamilton County Clerk Peggy Beaver will be on hand at the county's historic courthouse Tuesday morning for the implementation of the system.

Since Hamilton and Owen counties use the same type of CMS, Owen County started using Odyssey earlier this year so the state could learn about the data conversion before adding the larger Hamilton County, according to Mary DePrez, director and counsel for trial court technology, Indiana State Supreme Court, Division of State Court Administration's Judicial Technology and Automation Committee.

Costs to implement Odyssey are covered by JTAC from the proceeds of a court filing fee dedicated to the project by the General Assembly. The system has been designed to save taxpayer money by reducing paperwork and eliminating multiple data entries.

Odyssey was first installed in December 2007 in 10 Indiana courts on a pilot basis. The system will eventually connect all of Indiana courts' case management systems.

  1. Someone off their meds? C'mon John, it is called the politics of Empire. Get with the program, will ya? How can we build one world under secularist ideals without breaking a few eggs? Of course, once it is fully built, is the American public who will feel the deadly grip of the velvet glove. One cannot lay down with dogs without getting fleas. The cup of wrath is nearly full, John Smith, nearly full. Oops, there I go, almost sounding as alarmist as Smith. Guess he and I both need to listen to this again: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CRnQ65J02XA

  2. Charles Rice was one of the greatest of the so-called great generation in America. I was privileged to count him among my mentors. He stood firm for Christ and Christ's Church in the Spirit of Thomas More, always quick to be a good servant of the King, but always God's first. I had Rice come speak to 700 in Fort Wayne as Obama took office. Rice was concerned that this rise of aggressive secularism and militant Islam were dual threats to Christendom,er, please forgive, I meant to say "Western Civilization". RIP Charlie. You are safe at home.

  3. It's a big fat black mark against the US that they radicalized a lot of these Afghan jihadis in the 80s to fight the soviets and then when they predictably got around to biting the hand that fed them, the US had to invade their homelands, install a bunch of corrupt drug kingpins and kleptocrats, take these guys and torture the hell out of them. Why for example did the US have to sodomize them? Dubya said "they hate us for our freedoms!" Here, try some of that freedom whether you like it or not!!! Now they got even more reasons to hate us-- lets just keep bombing the crap out of their populations, installing more puppet regimes, arming one faction against another, etc etc etc.... the US is becoming a monster. No wonder they hate us. Here's my modest recommendation. How about we follow "Just War" theory in the future. St Augustine had it right. How about we treat these obvious prisoners of war according to the Geneva convention instead of torturing them in sadistic and perverted ways.

  4. As usual, John is "spot-on." The subtle but poignant points he makes are numerous and warrant reflection by mediators and users. Oh but were it so simple.

  5. ACLU. Way to step up against the police state. I see a lot of things from the ACLU I don't like but this one is a gold star in its column.... instead of fighting it the authorities should apologize and back off.
