Jack Kennedy wild about electronic filing in Virginia circuit courts

In this article ("Wise County court clerk pushing for e-filing of litigation," 1/26/2004) in the Kingsport Times (registration required), the Wise County Circuit Court clerk explains why he is nuts about electronic filing.

The Wise County Circuit Court has this memorable website, including a courtroom webcam. I heard the story that one time a lawyer in Norton, an older fellow but computer-savvy, was sitting in his office and had the courtroom cam turned on his screen while he worked at his desk, then heard the people in the courtroom starting to call out his name, so he ran out the door and drove quickly up to Wise.
