“We’re tearing down your storage facility. Please find another
place to keep your files.”
This was, essentially, the message that Washington’s Yakima
County District Court received when it had over
one-hundred thousand files warehoused at a soon-to-be-diminished storage facility.
Receiving an excess of 2 million filings a year, Yakima
County’s District Court Administrator Therese Murphy
and Office Supervisor Tamara Williams knew they needed a
long-term, safeguarded process for filings and storage, and they
needed it yesterday.
Join Therese and Tamara as they journey us through their
process of implementing, learning and, ultimately, succeeding with
the electronic filing system TrueFiling. Not only did it
transform their court operations, but it kept everyone
up-and-running from home during the unforeseen Coronavirus
A measure of their 2018 analytics revealed a return
- A 70 percent time saving in processing new civil
suits (65,850 minutes down to 19,755 minutes)
- Overall cost savings of $15,000
- 40 extra hours of filing returned to
- Positive, feedback from the
public, staff and especially the Judges!
