The Indiana judiciary’s statewide electronic case management system known as Odyssey is now used in 113 courts across 38 counties. Retiring Supreme Court Chief Justice Randall Shepard noted the program’s expansion in his last state of the judiciary address Wednesday.
Shepard praised the technological innovations Indiana’s court system has made over the past few years, and says it now stands at the forefront of the nation’s courts systems.
“These are century level advantages for America,” he says, “it will take everyone a very very long time to replicate any of these, much less replicate all of them at the same time.”
The Odyssey Case Management System was inaugurated three years ago and should eventually connect all courts across the state.
Shepard, who was appointed in 1985, will step down later this year as the longest-serving state chief justice in the nation.
