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. Two cops shot execution style in NYC. Was it first amendment protest, or was it incitement to lawlessness? Some are keeping track of the body bags: http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2014/12/13/al-sharpton-leads-thousands-in-saturday-march-on-washington-dc/

  2. From the MCBA: “This situation is not just about the death of Michael Brown, but the thousands of other African-Americans who are disproportionately targeted and killed by police officers.” The association said it was “saddened and disappointed” by the decision not to indict Ferguson police officer. HOPING that the MCBA will denouce the execution style killig of two NYC police officers this day, seemingly the act of one who likewise believes that the police are targeting blacks for murder and getting away with it. http://www.mediaite.com/online/two-nypd-cops-fatally-shot-in-ambush-in-brooklyn/ Pray this violence soon ends, and pray it stays far away from Indiana.

  3. "Am I bugging you? I don't mean to bug ya." If what I wrote below is too much social philosophy for Indiana attorneys, just take ten this vacay to watch The Lego Movie with kiddies and sing along where appropriate: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=etzMjoH0rJw

  4. I've got some free speech to share here about who is at work via the cat's paw of the ACLU stamping out Christian observances.... 2 Thessalonians chap 2: "And we also thank God continually because, when you received the word of God, which you heard from us, you accepted it not as a human word, but as it actually is, the word of God, which is indeed at work in you who believe. For you, brothers and sisters, became imitators of God’s churches in Judea, which are in Christ Jesus: You suffered from your own people the same things those churches suffered from the Jews who killed the Lord Jesus and the prophets and also drove us out. They displease God and are hostile to everyone in their effort to keep us from speaking to the Gentiles so that they may be saved. In this way they always heap up their sins to the limit. The wrath of God has come upon them at last."

  5. Did someone not tell people who have access to the Chevy Volts that it has a gas engine and will run just like a normal car? The batteries give the Volt approximately a 40 mile range, but after that the gas engine will propel the vehicle either directly through the transmission like any other car, or gas engine recharges the batteries depending on the conditions.
