JTAC is pleased to report that 104 courts in 35 counties are now using the Indiana Supreme Court’s Odyssey case management system. These courts comprise more than 34% of the state’s caseload. This achievement marks a significant milestone toward installing a uniform case management system in all Indiana courts. The most recent Odyssey deployments have taken place in Terre Haute City Court in Vigo County, and the Circuit and Superior Courts in Hendricks County.
Terre Haute City Court began using Odyssey on August 29th. Most notably, this Court joins Cass County courts in using a “bar code/scanning entry” which reduces errors when searching or opening cases in Odyssey. The Court processes approximately 11,000 cases every year, of which 7,000 are traffic tickets. JTAC thanks Clerk Charles P. Hanley, Deputy Clerk Michelle Edwards and the staff for their work during the software training and manual data conversion process, and congratulates them on making the successful transition to Odyssey!
Over the Labor Day weekend, JTAC staff converted all the legacy data for Hendricks County and on September 6th, Hendricks County judges and Clerk began using the Odyssey case management system. Prior to go-live, JTAC conducted training for three weeks on the new software and at the same time Hendricks County staff was very hands-on with the data review and conversion processes. The Courts process approximately 14,240 new case filings each year. JTAC extends its thanks to Clerk Cindy Spence, the Hendricks County judges – Hon. Jeffrey Boles, Hon. David Coleman, Hon. Robert Freese, Hon. Stephenie LeMay Luken, Hon. Karen Love, Hon. Mark Smith – and their staff for their dedication and hard work during Odyssey’s implementation. The entire Hendricks County staff has been wonderful over the past several months and it has been a pleasure to work with such a dedicated County.
Case data for all Odyssey courts is available at no cost to the public via Odyssey Public Access at mycase.in.gov.
