Franklin County Common Pleas Courts get approval
for new case management system


The Franklin County Board of Commissioners approved funding for a new Case Management System project for the Franklin County Common Pleas Courts. The three-and-a-half year, $8.8M project will consolidate eighteen county systems and provide upgraded public access to court documents. Preparation for the project has been a collaborative effort between the Franklin County Clerk of Courts’ Office, Court of Common Pleas General Division, Court of Common Pleas Domestic Relations Division and Juvenile Branch, Probate Court, and the 10th District Court of Appeals.


The purpose of the new system is to create an integrated, secure case management system that provides reliable, efficient and accurate results to the public. It will replace the current Franklin County Justice System (FCJS), a system that is over 30 years old, and will bring 21st century technologies to the Courts.


Expected benefits of the new case management system are:


  • Enhanced access to data and information reporting
  • Real-time data exchange with other county and state systems
  • Preserves technical functionality, while increasing efficiencies
  • Provides a more robust security model to combat cyber threats
  • Introduces cloud hosting to help shorten disaster recovery
  • Integration with the County’s existing eFiling without impacting user-functionality


The approved resolution includes a Software as Service Agreement, Services Contract, and ePayment Processing Agreement with Tyler Technologies Inc.
