BAY CITY, MI — Cutting edge technology has hit Bay County District Court, designed to give those citizens with minor offenses a streamlined way to resolve their cases without having to appear in court in the flesh.
The new Online Case Review System was developed by University of Michigan Law School professor J.J. Prescott and a former student of his, Ben Gubernick. It started in the 14A District Court in Washtenaw County and was put to use in Bay County on Aug. 25.
“There are three components to it,” said District Judge Dawn A. Klida, who is running the pilot program. “One is the traffic (violation) resolution. The second part is failure to appear. The third component is failure to pay fines and costs.”

What They Say
Very easy to use and helps me a lot. If this wasn't available there is no way I would have the time to come in and have a court date. Time away from work is a no-go.
It was very easy to use especially seeing I was going out of town.
The website was GREAT! Extremely timely and I was really amazed that an actual person responded....THANK YOU for this great opportunity!!
More courts should have this option to lessen the wait time it would normally take if having to go to court. Excellent service to have! Thank you again for having it.
This is a very helpful action for those of us that are safe drivers and made a mistake.
The website was very easy to understand and so convenient. I could check it every day to see if the status had changed and what action I would have to do.
What a great way to save time and money--for court and the client!
