  • State court systems often are slow to embrace the digital era, yet Massachusetts courts are launching a pilot program to permit attorneys to file legal papers electronically, the Boston Globe reported. It quoted an expert at the National Center for State Courts, a JAS partner organization, about the need for investment money to help courts take a “big leap forward.”
  • The National Judicial College, a JAS partner organization, awarded former Rutherford County (Tenn.) Judge Don R. Ash its Advancement of Justice Award, according to The Daily News Journal.
