Justice praises court-technology support

Back to TopE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Indiana Supreme Court Justice Frank Sullivan Jr. praised Gov. Mitch Daniels' administration's support for improved court technology during a speech Wednesday in Denver. Justice Sullivan addressed a plenary session at the National Court Technology Conference, which is sponsored by the National Center for State Courts.

The justice told attendees that Indiana courts exchange court information electronically with agencies through the Daniels administration in a way that increases public safety and saves taxpayers money.

"I am of the view that there is no state in this country where there is closer and more constructive collaboration on technology between the judicial and executive branches of government than we have in Indiana," he said in the speech.

Justice Sullivan explained that every traffic court in Indiana now notifies the Bureau of Motor Vehicles electronically of disposition of all traffic infractions, which enhances public safety by keeping driving records up-to-date. It also saves money by eliminating paper disposition reports by court staff and manual re-entry of data at the BMV.

Indiana courts also exchange court information electronically with the Indiana State Police, Indiana Department of Child Services, Indiana Department of Revenue, and the State Department of Health. Other agencies within the Daniels Administration - Indiana Criminal Justice Institute, Indiana Office of Technology, State Board of Accounts, and Indiana Department of Homeland Security - also have strongly supported the work of the Judicial Technology and Automation Committee.

Justice Sullivan was invited give a speech to a plenary session at the conference because of his experience leading the state's efforts in court technology projects. Justice Sullivan has chaired the Supreme Court's JTAC since its inception in 1999.

  1. It appears the police and prosecutors are allowed to change the rules halfway through the game to suit themselves. I am surprised that the congress has not yet eliminated the right to a trial in cases involving any type of forensic evidence. That would suit their foolish law and order police state views. I say we eliminate the statute of limitations for crimes committed by members of congress and other government employees. Of course they would never do that. They are all corrupt cowards!!!

  2. Poor Judge Brown probably thought that by slavishly serving the godz of the age her violations of 18th century concepts like due process and the rule of law would be overlooked. Mayhaps she was merely a Judge ahead of her time?

  3. in a lawyer discipline case Judge Brown, now removed, was presiding over a hearing about a lawyer accused of the supposedly heinous ethical violation of saying the words "Illegal immigrant." (IN re Barker) http://www.in.gov/judiciary/files/order-discipline-2013-55S00-1008-DI-429.pdf .... I wonder if when we compare the egregious violations of due process by Judge Brown, to her chiding of another lawyer for politically incorrectness, if there are any conclusions to be drawn about what kind of person, what kind of judge, what kind of apparatchik, is busy implementing the agenda of political correctness and making off-limits legit advocacy about an adverse party in a suit whose illegal alien status is relevant? I am just asking the question, the reader can make own conclsuion. Oh wait-- did I use the wrong adjective-- let me rephrase that, um undocumented alien?

  4. of course the bigger questions of whether or not the people want to pay for ANY bussing is off limits, due to the Supreme Court protecting the people from DEMOCRACY. Several decades hence from desegregation and bussing plans and we STILL need to be taking all this taxpayer money to combat mostly-imagined "discrimination" in the most obviously failed social program of the postwar period.

  5. You can put your photos anywhere you like... When someone steals it they know it doesn't belong to them. And, a man getting a divorce is automatically not a nice guy...? That's ridiculous. Since when is need of money a conflict of interest? That would mean that no one should have a job unless they are already financially solvent without a job... A photographer is also under no obligation to use a watermark (again, people know when a photo doesn't belong to them) or provide contact information. Hey, he didn't make it easy for me to pay him so I'll just take it! Well heck, might as well walk out of the grocery store with a cart full of food because the lines are too long and you don't find that convenient. "Only in Indiana." Oh, now you're passing judgement on an entire state... What state do you live in? I need to characterize everyone in your state as ignorant and opinionated. And the final bit of ignorance; assuming a photo anyone would want is lucky and then how much does your camera have to cost to make it a good photo, in your obviously relevant opinion?
