The Little Rock District Court is getting a new electronic case management system that will aid in the court's functions.
Robert Rubow with the Administrative Office of the Courts says the Supreme Court has provided electronic case management across the state since 2006 and Little Rock will now become part of the system. He says the new program will allow easier access to court records.
"Their data is not just accessible from within the courthouse, it's available from anywhere in the state," Rubow said.
He says the program is also expected to save money.
"A lot of the cost on upgrades of software application and on backups of the data is being taken on by the Arkansas Supreme Court Administrative Office of the Courts," he said.
Rubow says the system will be fully functional by next spring.
