The Arizona Superior Court in Pima County is pleased to announce that it has been honored by the Arizona Supreme Court with two state-level awards. The awards will be presented at the Court Leadership Conference luncheon on Tuesday, October 21, 2014.
The first award, for “Promoting Access to Justice,” was given to the Family Law Bench’s Simpla Phi Lex project, a collaborative effort with the James E. Rogers College of Law and the English Department at the University of Arizona. This project was conceived as a means of improving access to the court, especially for self-represented litigants, by simplifying language used in court forms and brochures to increase both readability and ease-of -use for the general public. The project has resulted in the successful redesign of nearly all of the “Self Service” forms for Family Law cases, where 80% of cases involve self- represented individuals. The project is ongoing, as more forms are improved and updates continue. “Essentially,” said Presiding Judge Sarah R. Simmons, “we’ve made it much easier for people to help themselves navigate through the legal system.”
The second award, for “Enhancing Professionalism,” was given to the Superior Court for the e-Bench pilot program launched successfully in late August. This project is a collaboration between the Superior Court, the Administrative Office of the Courts and the Clerk of the Superior Court’s office to implement aiSmartBench, a software product designed by Mentis Technologies to make the judicial process more efficient. It provides judicial officers and their assistants with one-stop electronic access on the desktop to summary case information, including all case documents and documents in related cases, as well as often-used reference materials. Without such immediate access, court hearings may be delayed to accommodate the retrieval of necessary documents. According to Court Administrator Kent Batty, “The goal is to give judges new electronic tools to make their work on the bench smoother, easier, and more efficient.” The three judges participating in the pilot have already expressed that the technology has improved courtroom business operations, including expediting decision-making processes.
