An interesting article was posted on Government Technology magazine's website (, "Montgomery County Hoping to be Among First in Texas to Go to a 'Paperless' Justice System by Cindy Horswell of McClatchy News Service on July 2, 2014.


"As Texas mandates electronic filing of all civil cases as part of a push toward a "paperless" statewide justice system, Montgomery County is installing a state-of-the-art computer system that will seamlessly share data among judges, clerks, prosecutors and investigators."

"We want to be a leader in the move toward this integrated electronic system for all data statewide, one that could make us among the first to go paperless," said Marshall Shirley, the county's information and technology director. That's why the county is spending $8.1 million to update its antiquated, non-Windows based system, which is more than a decade old."

  1. E-Filing is a tipping point that is accelerating the rate at which paper is being driven from the court. We have found this among Odyssey clients across the country – and in particular this year among Odyssey eFileTexas users and progressive clients like Montgomery County that are using mandatory e-filing to help them stay ahead of the curve.
