Common Pleas Court Awarded Tech Grant from Ohio Supreme Court

Common Pleas Tech GrantBATAVIA, Ohio (June 3, 2015) – The Clermont County Courthouse will undergo a technology upgrade with a grant from the Ohio Supreme Court’s Ohio Courts Technology Initiative.

Supreme Court Chief Justice Maureen O’Connor today delivered a check for $10,519 to Clermont County Common Pleas Court.

“I am pleased to personally present this check on behalf of the Supreme Court. It is important that we support local court technology projects to remove any barriers to the efficient and effective administration of justice,” Chief Justice O’Connor said.

The grant will be used to buy audio recording equipment and software for a new grand jury room that is under construction. Currently, without the recording equipment, the court reporter’s office must have a reporter available immediately, or the grand jury must move to a room with recording equipment.

“The Clermont County Court of Common Pleas is grateful to the Ohio Supreme Court for its assistance in providing funds for technological upgrades in our court. Everyone appreciated Chief Justice O’Connor’s visit to our court, which demonstrates the ongoing support and guidance we receive from her and the Supreme Court,” Judge Thomas Herman said.

The Supreme Court has awarded more than $1.9 million to local courts across Ohio for technology projects such as electronic document filing, case management system software, and electronic kiosks for self-represented litigants.
