For today’s judicial professionals, work doesn’t end when you leave the courthouse. To stay on top of your caseload, you need to be able to securely access case information from wherever you are, whatever the day or time. With Forecourt® Touch mobile applications for the judiciary, it’s easy to get exactly the information you need, whether you’re at home or on the road.
Mobile Apps for Judges and Clerks
Leveraging a court system’s existing infrastructure for secure remote access (such as a VPN), the Forecourt Touch mobile application for judges gives busy judges anytime, anywhere access to information about their own caseloads. Based on a judge’s unique login ID, Forecourt Touch filters data from the Forecourt Case Management System to present information exclusively for the judge’s own caseload. From this personalized case information, the judge can narrow the focus to:
- Cases Heard and Active
- Cases with Open Motions
- Cases with Motion Pending Ruling
- Personalized Hearing Calendar
- Case filings and documents
- And more
For each case, the judge can access case docket information as well as case documents such as briefs and motions.
The Forecourt Touch mobile application for clerks, like the judges app, provides personalized caseload and calendar information based on login ID. Along with many of the same case categories as the application for judges, the Forecourt Touch mobile app for clerks delivers information such as cases awaiting scheduling and motions that have been filed but not yet assigned.
Mobile Public Access to Case Information
Courthouses that purchase Forecourt ePublish along with the Forecourt Case Management System are able to provide web-based public access to non-confidential case information. A Forecourt Touch mobile application can extend this public access to mobile device users. Case litigants, attorneys, members of the press, researchers, and court staff can use the Forecourt Touch mobile public access app to review case dockets, court calendars, and more.
