Electronic Court Record Updates Coming

KSAL StaffJuly 10, 2013

An infusion of federal grant money is expected to improve access to court records and reduce expenses by expanding electronic case filing to more Kansas district courts.

Chief Justice Lawton R. Nuss announced Wednesday that the Kansas Supreme Court was awarded a $205,152 grant via the Kansas Criminal Justice Coordinating Council.

The money will be used to fund installation of electronic district court case filings in Wyandotte, Butler, Reno, Saline, Finney and Geary counties.

Pilot programs are already in place at the Kansas Supreme Court and Court of Appeals, as well as in Leavenworth, Douglas and Sedgwick counties.

Some 443,779 cases were filed in Kansas district courts last year, and with the grant 65 percent of the state’s caseload will now be documented in the e-filing system.
