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.”
Courts, mediation centers, and government agencies use Matterhorn online dispute resolution (ODR).
ODR offers several key benefits including: increased access to justice, fairness, greater efficiency for staff, faster payments, and high customer satisfaction.
Matterhorn serves small to large districts, urban to rural communities, and decentralized to unified systems. The platform can match or streamline on your existing process and connects in a lightweight way with your other systems.
Matterhorn enables you to address a wide variety of case types including civil cases (such as small claims cases) and family court compliance, traffic tickets, civil infractions, and lesser misdemeanors (“Class C” Misdemeanors in some states), resolve warrants and pleas, and assess ability to pay.
