Gerchick writes on so-called "AZ Turbo Court"

November 24, 2009

Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law Class of 2000 alumna Cari Gerchick recently wrote an advertising supplement "The Impact of the Economy on Arizona Courts" that appeared in the Oct. 23 Phoenix Business Journal.

Gerchick's article explains that Arizona's courts have begun using online technology, dubbed the "Arizona Turbo Court" system, to increase efficiency. The system allows court documents to be sent to judges, staff and litigants simultaneously, reducing court administrative staff workloads, and in some cases, decreasing the need for hard-copy versions of case files. Litigants, including the public, often will be able to access the online system to file, retrieve and use court documents without the need to make a trip to their nearest court house.

Gerchick is the former director for the Arizona Supreme Court, and was chosen by the Phoenix New Times as "Best Public Information Officer for 2007."
