Goodbye paper, hello keyboard.

The Indiana Appellate Clerk’s Office has launched a new site for attorneys and judges to maintain their licenses and update other information. We wrote about the new portal in our latest issue of Indiana Lawyer.

I’m curious if you’ve had a chance to take a look at the site.  What are your thoughts about doing everything online? Do you prefer to get notifications via email instead of letters? Are there any downsides to this new system? Let us know what you think about the changes.

  • Online Atty Registration
    I used the site and it worked fine. However, I would be able to open a letter, write a check, and return mail faster than working through the site requirements. As usual, time and efficiency take a back seat to a "new technical" approach. Great for the provider (Clerk of Court) but more time for end user. Be aware that I am over 50 and may be a little biased when I am told the new way is so much "better"! Right! LOL
  • e-check mechanism needs tweaking
    I have no great problem with an online payment setup, but I think the e-check setup needs some work. I tried entering my routing and account number twice, to no avail.
  • Bugs in system
    The first time I tried, the Clerk's portal system was down, and I was told to wait an hour and try again. After I opened the site and paid by credit card, I was not allowed to enter my email address to get a receipt. The current system will not accept email addressess over 30 characters to return a receipt. I was told this will be increased to 50 within 30 days. I had to use my personal email address to receive a receipt, and it did not list who the payee was.

  1. Being dedicated to a genre keeps it alive until the masses catch up to the "trend." Kent and Bill are keepin' it LIVE!! Thank you gentlemen..you know your JAZZ.

  2. Hemp has very little THC which is needed to kill cancer cells! Growing cannabis plants for THC inside a hemp field will not work...where is the fear? From not really knowing about Cannabis and Hemp or just not listening to the people teaching you through testimonies and packets of info over the last few years! Wake up Hoosier law makers!

  3. If our State Government would sue for their rights to grow HEMP like Kentucky did we would not have these issues. AND for your INFORMATION many medical items are also made from HEMP. FOOD, FUEL,FIBER,TEXTILES and MEDICINE are all uses for this plant. South Bend was built on Hemp. Our states antiquated fear of cannabis is embarrassing on the world stage. We really need to lead the way rather than follow. Some day.. we will have freedom in Indiana. And I for one will continue to educate the good folks of this state to the beauty and wonder of this magnificent plant.

  4. Put aside all the marijuana concerns, we are talking about food and fiber uses here. The federal impediments to hemp cultivation are totally ridiculous. Preposterous. Biggest hemp cultivators are China and Europe. We get most of ours from Canada. Hemp is as versatile as any crop ever including corn and soy. It's good the governor laid the way for this, regrettable the buffoons in DC stand in the way. A statutory relic of the failed "war on drugs"

  5. Cannabis is GOOD for our PEOPLE and GOOD for our STATE... 78% would like to see legal access to the product line for better Hoosier Heath. There is a 25% drop in PAIN KILLER Overdoses in states where CANNABIS is legal.
