On Wednesday, Aug. 10, Gov. Charlie Baker signed into law a bond bill that provides $165 million in funding to modernize the information technology infrastructure of state courthouses in the commonwealth. Long endorsed by the Massachusetts Bar Association, the IT bond bill previously passed both the House and Senate at the close of the legislative session.
The funding will support capital projects to enhance virtual access to court proceedings, improve digital security across the system, and transition to an electronic format for case filings and other administrative processes.
