RE: Rule 20, N.D.R.Crim.P., Transfer from the County for Plea and Sentence, Rule 21, N.D.R.Crim.P., Transfer from the County for Trial
At the Fargo Veterans Stand Down in October, Cass County State's Attorney Birch Burdick pointed out that the file transfer procedures in Rules 20 and 21 did not seem to reflect up-to-date electronic case file management. Staff discussed this with Director of Technology Larry Zubke, who proposed some amendments to the rules to reflect use of the Odyssey® system to transfer case files. His email, attached, contains his proposed amendments and also provides details of what clerks must do within the Odyssey® system to electronically transfer a file. Proposed rule amendments based on Mr. Zubke's work are attached.
