Court website among the nation’s top ten

The New Jersey’s judicial website was named among the top ten in the nation by the Forum for the Advancement of Court Technology (FACT) at the annual meeting of the National Association of Court Managers in Scottsdale, Arizona.

“We are honored that our comprehensive and interactive statewide website has been recognized by FACT, a national organization of court professionals and information technology companies,” said Chief Justice Stuart Rabner. “I am so proud of Communications Director Winnie Comfort and her outstanding team of web developers, led by Kim Madera, for making a national leader among court websites.”

The five-member panel of judges included court managers and business leaders with expertise in justice issues who judged court websites on the accessibility of public records, the quality of the user interface, accessibility, interactive capabilities, and overall impression.

The FACT evaluators made note of the comprehensiveness of the site, the audio and visual components, and the fact that the site offers so much to so many different constituents.

“We are glad that has been recognized for providing useful information and resources for all of our court users, including litigants, lawyers, the media and the general public,” said Judge Glenn A. Grant, acting administrative director of the courts. “From legal reference materials to self-help forms for self-represented litigants, from searchable databases for civil cases and criminal convictions to our online ticket payment system, the Judiciary website aims to provide information and assistance to all of our customers.”

Founded in 1989, FACT is a consortium of private-sector companies and court representatives dedicated to strengthening the dialogue between courts that use technology and companies that provide technology.

FACT members support a variety of national court and technology management associations, including the National Center for State Courts, the Court Information Technology Officers Consortium, and the Conference of State Court Administrators.
