... but they keep talking about it.
The latest from Mississippi:
The article states that a statewide system is 3-4 years away, (and will cost $5M-$7M) but in the meantime some MS courts are making some information available online. That information includes limited online access to court records to let the public know when cases are scheduled for trial...but still will not allow the person to read the actual documents.
The article continues announcing that Circuit & Chancery Courts in Harrison County will begin scanning documents into a system that will eventually allow attorneys and the public to view online court documents.
Note: Why do so many courts spend the time & money to scan documents which are produced electronically?
Reaction from the Bar:
"The entire federal court system is already online. From my computer, I can look at any federal case across the country. I can also see a list of all documents filed in the case and copy any document filed after Jan. 1, 2005," Wilkins said. "The cost is about 8 cents per page, but we save thousands of dollars in expense by not having to go to the court in person."
