- Electronic Exhibits Project (e-Exhibits): The Austin division has been piloting the use of GoToMeeting to better facilitate the flow of evidence presentation in larger, more exhibit concentrated trials. The results have been less cumbersome evidence, less time spent making multiple paper copies, easier to follow evidence and quicker trials. Please click here for more information.
- Digital Audio Files (Coming Soon!): Within the next six months, we’ll be providing digital audio recordings of court proceedings via the PACER system. In March 2010, the Judicial Conference approved the plan to make digital audio recordings available on PACER after a two year pilot project showed significant public interest in accessing these files. Prior to the pilot, access was only possible by obtaining a CD recording from a court clerks office for $30. The new digital files will cost $2.40 to download. The presiding judge will determine which audio recordings will be posted on PACER. Stay tuned for more information and a formal announcement about the availability of the audio court recordings in our court.
