State’s chief justice visits Alamance to see how rollout of eCourts is going


North Carolina Chief Justice Paul Newby visited Alamance County’s courts Tuesday afternoon to discuss the implementation of the state’s new online courts records management system, “eCourts,” which took effect in Alamance County Monday morning.

Alamance County was among 10 N.C. counties where eCourts took effect on Monday.

Officials in the state’s Administrative Office of the Courts say that eCourts will be launched in 49 counties by the end of this year, effectively making much of the state’s courts systems paperless as new and existing court files are transferred to electronic documents that will be available online 24/7.
