During a press conference held in the Supreme Court courtroom, Babauta discussed with Chief Justice Philip Carbullido and others about the second phase of the new system, which is funded through a $3.7 million dollar U.S. Department of Interior grant.
When the system is finished in the fall, it will enable e-filing for all Superior and Supreme Court cases. Island residents can also make on-line payments for court fines, fees and restitution. Babauta states the system also integrates the court with law enforcement and other supporting agencies for the 21st century.
“It's about transparency. It's about efficiency. It's about being a court system that is responsive to the island's community” said Babauta.
Although data conversion from their old system is a challenge, court officials say once the new system is fully active, the online payment aspect is hoped to reduce the parking issues at the judicial center. The Court Management Information System should be done by October 1.
