CSI’s InfoShare Improves Processing Time in NJ Attorney Ethics Cases
CSI was credited in the NJ Law Journal for providing the technology to the NJ Supreme Court’s Disciplinary Review Board (DRB) that has helped the DRB adjudicate and docket more cases in 2011 than in any year since the mid-2000s. The article, written by David Gialanella on July 6, quotes the DRB’s chief counsel, Julianne DeCore, with stating that it is the goal of the DRB to “dispose of as many cases as possible.” She claims that the improved degree of success in processing so many cases “is really due to the implementation of technology.” DeCore points to the DRB’s document management system that allows for faster document and data searches, report generation and research and has allowed the DRB and Office of Attorney Ethics (OAE) to transmit and receive documents electronically.”
“The applications were all developed by a state contractor, Computer Square Inc, based in Keasbey,” the article states. CSI has also installed the InfoShare system in the NJ Supreme and Appellate Courts and in the Office of Attorney Ethics. The DRB reviews all recommendations for attorney discipline received from the OAE and from other committees. The Supreme Court automatically hears recommendations for disbarment, as well as other DRB rulings on the attorney’s or the OAE’s appeal.
An automated interface between the Supreme Court, the OAE and the DRB is currently under development by CSI.
