From the Supreme Court of Ohio, 3-minute Mediator Survey: Over the last several months, Ohio courts have been responsive to the COVID-19 pandemic by implementing innovative technological strategies to safeguard against the unnecessary delay of the administration of justice. As courts continue to navigate these unprecedented times, the Supreme Court of Ohio established the Task Force on Improving Court Operations Using Remote Technology (iCOURT) to review courts’ use of technology to ensure the continued and effective operation of the judicial system and make recommendations regarding the use of technology in the future.
Specifically, the iCOURT Task Force was asked to survey justice system participants regarding their experiences and opinions with remote appearances and proceedings to help inform the task force’s recommendations. The input of the stakeholders in our justice system will be essential to the work of the task force. The deadline to respond is Monday November 23rd. Please contact iCOURTSurvey@sc.ohio.gov<mailto:iCOURTSurvey@sc.ohio.gov> if you have any questions. Link email to members in OMA Events ~ November.
