Delaware Courts Lead Nation

Superior Court has a legacy of leadership in the use of technology. Since 1991 the Court has continually embraced and implemented the newest advances in technology.

For over 23 years throughout the court and the courtroom we have used the newest electronic processes and procedures. In 1991 we had one of the only statewide online case management and efiling systems.

Steady advances have added specialized databases, CD-ROM briefs, video-conferencing, automated criminal sentencing, Web access to vital information, and advanced hardware and software in the court and the courtroom. The Court, the attorneys and the public have all benefited from the advancements with easier access, efficiency and productivity.

Our experimental eCourtroom became operational in August 1999, when the Delaware State Bar Association teamed up with vendors to design and implement what was purported to be the nation's first actively used eCourtroom.

Superior Court built upon the hands-on experience gained in the experimental eCourt and proceeded to establish new hi-tech courthouses in Wilmington, Dover, and Georgetown.
