Glenn Court has been working on migrating to a new case management system, called Odyssey for several years now. At long last, we are ready to convert to Tyler’s Odyssey Case Management System.

Our goal is to be live on the new system on Monday, August 26, 2019. Delays will likely be significant, as our staff work to resolve each issue as it arises. We ask for your assistance and patience over the coming weeks, both before and after the go-live.

Initially, access to information will be limited, until the public portal is secured, tested and linked to our website. On Thursday and Friday, August 22-23, the Court will be in a manual mode, processing paper and creating manual receipts. We would ask that you minimize your filings during those days if at all possible.

Once the conversion is complete, you will see increased access to information via the web portal.

We welcome your comments and feedback as we engage this new case management system. In the meantime, please do not hesitate to contact us if you have questions or concerns.
