Courts: Idaho case computer system at end of life

BOISE, Idaho (AP) - The Idaho Supreme Court says the state's computerized case filing system is becoming obsolete and a replacement is needed.

In a new report to lawmakers and Idaho Gov. C.L. "Butch" Otter, the high court proposes a 5-year, $21.6 million plan to replace the Idaho Statewide Trial Court Record System with a new case management program called Odyssey, created by Tyler Technologies.

The current system has been declared by its vendor to be at "end of life," according to the report.

The case management system allows the public to view files on everything from felony cases to speeding tickets online. The new program would expand those capabilities to add an online payment system, electronic filing and video conferencing.
