A recent article in EDGE — the business magazine of the Chattanooga Times Free Press — looks at Hamilton County Juvenile Court’s electronic make-over under the direction of Judge Rob Philyaw. “Record Breaking: Hamilton County Juvenile Court Leads the State in Electronic Conversion” follows a nearly 10-year effort by clerk Gary Behler to move the office from paper records to all electronic records, as well as offer digital tools for the public to use when interacting with the court. Within the next month, the court plans to become the first juvenile court in the state to offer electronic filing of court documents. Judge Philyaw said he is proud of the work of staff, the clerk and the clerk’s staff to make these improvements possible.
