Desktop ComputerJudiciary Announces Plans for E-Courts

The Maryland Judiciary is working with its justice partners, members of the bar and advocacy groups to update all its court management systems, including integrating new technology, business processes and management practices. The project, known as Maryland Electronic Courts (MDEC), will result in the creation of a single Judiciary-wide integrated case management system that will be used by all levels of the courts within the Judiciary.

This new initiative will allow for electronic filing by litigants, e-service, electronic scheduling, the exchange of digital files, and timely data access. An advisory committee, led by District Court of Maryland Chief Judge Ben C. Clyburn, has announced plans to roll out this new technology in 2012, starting with Anne Arundel County District and Circuit courts, along with the Court of Special Appeals and the Court of Appeals.
