The Hendricks County courts and clerk are now using the “Odyssey” case management system, which makes court information available online in 108 courts across Indiana. Hendricks County is now connected to a growing network of courts, clerks, law enforcement and other state agencies. An estimated 20,500 new cases filed in Hendricks County each year will be managed by the computer system.
Hendricks Superior Judge Stephenie LeMay-Luken said county judges were excited about adopting the Odyssey system, which did not cost taxpayers anything.
Approximately 7 million cases from court records in 36 counties are available for searching in Odyssey, and about 35 percent of the state’s new caseload is on the system. The Indiana Supreme Court is working to equip every trial court with a uniform case management system. Currently, there are 22 different court case management systems statewide and the systems do not communicate with each other or state agencies. Odyssey also makes court information available to the public over the Internet at no charge.
