Electronic filing is part of the Odyssey® Case Management System. The Court System has purchased the Odyssey® Case Management System from Tyler Technologies to replace an aging, statewide court case management system and is being implemented in all district courts and some municipal courts. The Court System anticipates that the Odyssey® Case Management System will be deployed in all 53 counties by June 2011.
