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. I will be filing a lawsuit in Tippecanoe County for so many violations in a case we became involved in, including failure to contact through mail, Violation of 4th Amendment rights, Violation of Civil Rights, and so on. Even the Indiana Ombudsmen Bureau found violations and I have now received the report and they are demanding further training in Tippecanoe County. I am going to make sure they follow through!!!

  3. I thought the purpose of the criminal justice center was to consolidate all the criminal services and get them out of downtown to clean up the place. Why in the HELL are the civil courts moving? What a burden to all the downtown law firms. Now we all get to work downtown, but then have to get in a car and COMMUTE to court? Who approved this idiocy?

  4. I drive through the neighborhood whenever I go to the City-County Building or the Federal Courthouse. The surrounding streets are all two way with only two lanes of traffic, and traffic is very slow during rush hour. I hope that enough money has been allocated to allow for improvement of the surrounding streets.

  5. I have had an ongoing custody case for 6 yrs. I should have been the sole legal custodial parent but was a victim of a vindictive ex and the system biasedly supported him. He is an alcoholic and doesn't even have a license for two yrs now after his 2nd DUI. Fast frwd 6 yrs later my kids are suffering poor nutritional health, psychological issues, failing in school, have NO MD and the GAL could care less, DCS doesn't care. The child isn't getting his ADHD med he needs and will not succeed in life living this way. NO one will HELP our family.I tried for over 6 yrs. The judge called me an idiot for not knowing how to enter evidence and the last hearing was 8 mths ago. That in itself is unjust! The kids want to be with their Mother! They are being alienated from her and fed lies by their Father! I was hit in a car accident 3 yrs ago and am declared handicapped myself. Poor poor way to treat the indigent in Indiana!
