Hall County Courts to launch next-gen record system

By Logan Landers Anchor/Reporter
Three Hall County courts are expected to transition to a next-generation Case Management System on Monday, November 14th.
Hall County Superior Court, State Court and Magistrate Court will begin using the ICON CMS360 web-based record system.
The ICON CMS360 is able to docket all case types including civil and criminal as well as provide financial and document management capabilities. 
This platform will replace the Comprehensive Justice Information System which has been in use since the 1980s.
“It will better equip our clerk staff and judges to handle tens of thousands of cases we see each year," Michelle Meeks, chief deputy clerk for Superior and State Court said. "But we look forward to using the system to expand our communication and access options also available to the public.” 
Due to this change, the Clerk of Courts Office and Magistrate Court will be closed early Friday with both reopening at 8:30 a.m. on Monday.
Electronic filing in both the State and Superior Courts through the PeachCourt portal could potentially be inaccessible until 8:00 a.m. on Monday as well.
CMS360 is the second of three planned ICON branded conversions, the first was a new jury management system that was deployed in 2021 and the final installment will be in real estate records, which is slated to begin in early 2023.
