MIAMI-DADE COURTS TO LAUNCH PILOT
CASE MANAGEMENT AND ACCESS PLATFORM IN
CIRCUIT CIVIL DIVISION
In an effort to increase access to the courts and streamline common case management functions, the Eleventh Judicial Circuit is pleased to announce the upcoming pilot rollout of courtMAP – a new online case management and access platform within the Circuit Civil Division starting on March 11, 2019.
courtMAP combines eCourtesy, a 10-year-old system for electronically submitting documentation for hearings, with an online scheduling system that allows parties to self-schedule motion hearings, specially set hearings and trials based on an online display of available dates and times – all from any web-connected computer. Confirmations will occur automatically by email.
The new system uses technology infrastructure from Broward’s Court Management System, an advantage for attorneys and staff who work in both circuits and will already have some operational familiarity with the system.
“courtMAP takes court communications, scheduling and transparency into the 21st Century,” said the Honorable Jennifer D. Bailey, Administrative Judge of the Circuit Civil Division.
The pilot will be deployed in the following four sections of the Circuit Civil Division, with plans for future expansion in the near future:
Judge Antonio Arzola (Section 24)
Judge Rodolfo Ruiz (Section 02)
Judge William Thomas (Sections 20 and 44)
For more information, a user manual and access to training videos, visit the courtMAP page on the Eleventh Judicial Circuit Website.
