Court Awarded $100,000 Grant to Modernize the Court
Lyndhurst: The Court received a $100,000 grant through the Ohio Supreme Court’s 2019 Technology Grant Fund. This is one of the largest grants ever awarded by the Ohio Supreme Court to a single-judge, municipal court.
Utilizing the grant funds, the Court will be replacing its current case management software (CMS) and modernizing the Court. With the new CMS, the Court’s technology will be on par with the more technologically advanced municipal courts in Ohio. With the new CMS, the Court will:
- Accept online payments, which will make it more convenient for individuals to satisfy monetary obligations to the Court;
- Implement electronic filing, which allows case documents, such as pleadings and motions to be filed with the Court electronically;
- Make all orders, pleadings and motions accessible online; and
- Be able to send text notifications to remind individuals of upcoming hearings, appointments or when their next scheduled payment is due.
These improvements will make the Court more accessible, convenient and efficient for all Court users.
