About Us

At Courthouse Technologies we develop software and technologies specifically for use in the management of the jury process. Jury management systems are all we do.

Courthouse Technologies was incorporated in 2005 because commercial jury management solutions have not kept pace with changing technology. Our flagship product, Courthouse JMS, is the only commercial-off-the-shelf Web application for jury management available on the market.

We are comprised of career jury management experts. As a group of jury management IT professionals we have implemented, trained, and supported users of jury management systems which we designed and built in over 800 courts in 3 countries. Scott Kerr, our President and Paul Arntsen, our VP of Product Development have been building and marketing jury management systems for over 20 years.

Our Advantages

  • Nobody on the planet knows more about jury management that we do. Period.
  • Our suite of JMS solutions are the only fully Web-based systems available on the market.
  • Our systems provide the greatest out-of-the-box configurability of any commercial jury management system.
  • The peripheral software systems we offer are authored by us, not by a third party vendor so they integrate seamlessly and provide greater functionality with less management than any other solution.
  • Our solutions can be licensed for site-wide use by as many users as you need, or you can subscribe (site-wide) to use these systems in connection with our data cleansing, summons printing and mailing service called SummonsDirect.

    - Traci Dias, Judicial Administrator - Orleans Parish, LA
  • Over 30% of summonses were completed over the internet in the first month and we expect 50-60% in future. The eResponse product reduced the manual effort required by Sheriffs to receive data and enter and respond to summonses.
    - John Sherrah, President - ITI International Technology Integration (Project Manager for Province of BC)
  • I am pleased to say that Courthouse Technologies has so streamlined the Jury selection and notification processes in Lake County that intervention from the I.T. Department is rarely needed for routine processing. The Courts are truly self-serving.
    - Jim Walsh, Information Technology Director - Lake County, OH
  • eResponse has been our biggest money saver! We have already saved $50k and we are only half way through our fiscal year. I believe we are track to save $70K by cancelling jurors before they get to the court.
