Coming Soon: The Washington State Courts Transition to the Odyssey System Continues!
The seventh phase of the transitions of the Washington State Superior Courts data to the new Odyssey system continues on Monday, June 4th as twelve more Superior Courts make the move. They are:
- Pend Oreille
- Walla Walla
That will bring the total number of Odyssey counties to 35.
Ahead of this latest transition, all current and new Odyssey Superior Courts will be unavailable online from Noon PST Friday, 06/01/18 thru 8am PST Sunday 06/03/18
It should be noted that two Washington State counties have elected not to transition to the Odyssey system: Pierce and King. While Pierce plans to continue using its existing LINX system, King County will soon be moving its localized data to a system created by Journal Technologies. What we presently know about that project can be found in our previous blog post, HERE.
The CourtTrax Advantage
As with the previous Odyssey transitions of Washington State county data, CourtTrax will have its unique “hybrid case report” available to its customers.
When a Washington State Superior Court’s data makes the move to the Odyssey system from the old SCOMIS system, both legacy cases and newly filed cases are still housed within both systems until such time as all of the participating Superior Courts make the switch. As a result of how the courts have handled this data replication process, there are often disparities between what information is available on Odyssey vs. SCOMIS, and vice versa.
In response to this, CourtTrax has devised a unique “hybrid” case report for those counties which have moved to Odyssey. The hybrid report combines all case data from both the new Odyssey system, and the legacy SCOMIS system for any given case. By this process we ensure our customers have the most complete picture of a case’s available information, unless or until the Washington AOC resolves the errors in data replication.
