New online court hearing calendar in use by more than 30 counties

The Indiana Supreme Court has launched a new online tool providing information about daily dockets for courts in more than 30 Indiana counties.

The online hearing calendar displays hearing dates and times for hearings in participating courts up to seven days in the past and four weeks in the future. Also, the online tool provides information including case numbers, the names of presiding judicial officers and brief case descriptions.

The new calendar website is integrated with and the remote video hearings platform that was created in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Only courts using the Odyssey online case management program can opt in to the new service.

As of September 2020, roughly 92% of the state’s court caseload was handled through Odyssey. That’s translated into more than 100 trial courts in more than 30 counties that are using the new online calendar tool.

“We are working to provide increased public access to the courts,” Indiana Chief Justice Loretta Rush said in a Thursday statement announcing the online calendar tool. “Having trial calendars readily available is an important way to provide good customer service to the litigants.”

Indiana Administrative Rule 9(e)(2) requires courts to make their daily calendars public, while a November order from the Indiana Supreme Court allows judges to livestream courtroom proceedings.
