Public comments sought on policies for Maryland court change to computerized records system

Access to electronic records, fees among issues

August 31, 2012|By Andrea F. Siegel, The Baltimore Sun

Maryland courts are accepting public comment through Sept. 21 on policies for the soon-to-be-installed electronic system that will allow the courts to receive, send and keep documents in computerized case files.

Policy issues that have not been decided yet include those for access to electronic records and fees for remote access to the materials. Written comments should be sent to Sandra F. Haines, Esq., 2011-D Commerce Park Drive, Annapolis, Md., 21401. The Court of Appeals will meet Oct. 18 to consider the remarks.

Plans call for paper documents to be available only when requested in new cases. Installation of the multimillion-dollar system is to start next year in Anne Arundel County, where it will be tested before it continues throughout the state. Information:
