Planning Begins for E-filing in Shelby Co. Criminal Courts

Before he was elected Shelby County Criminal Court clerk in 2010, Kevin Key worked on an e-filing system in circuit court that made its debut this week. Now Key is working toward an e-filing system for the criminal court. Requests for proposals are set to go out soon for vendors to tie all the different criminal justice systems into a central hub. Key’s part of the system includes the ability to file court documents by computer or scan them into the system. Anticipating the task ahead, he says, “It’s going to be the largest single computer system ever implemented by Shelby County government.” The Memphis Daily News reports
