High court vies for international tech award

September 22, 2008

The Indiana Supreme Court is one of 13 international finalists being recognized for recent technology efforts, which include the case management system being phased in statewide to connect all county courts.

As part of its 13th annual international competition, the non-profit Information Integrity Coalition honors organizations that have made "demonstrable progress" through a single project or an enterprise-wide effort toward achieving information integrity. Overall, 66 non-profit or governmental organizations were nominated for an award of excellence, according to an Indiana Supreme Court news release today.

The award categories include for-profit and non-profit organizations. The Indiana Supreme Court joined non-profit groups in India and across the United States in getting recognition. The Office of the Clerk of the Circuit Court of Cook County, Ill., also is one of seven finalists in that category.

The court's work being honored includes the Odyssey statewide case management system, an electronic protection order registry, and e-citation and warning system that coordinates law enforcement and court records with the Bureau of Motor Vehicles.

An awards ceremony is scheduled for Oct. 20 in Chicago where a gold, silver, and bronze award will be given.
