View Full Version : Courtroom Application

Anyone know of any use of Ubuntu (or Linux) in a courtroom anywhere, the USA specifically? I had an associate make the statement that there are no courtrooms in the USA that use Linux. Punkt. I found that a bit outlandish and am trying to find out any examples of a court using Linux/Ubuntu in their environment.

Do courtrooms use any special programs?
(besides maybe a word processor?)

I found this PDF detaling a computer forensics course, in which they learn Linux:
Ooh! Got one:
There's a guy employed as "Linux/Solaris System Administrator". Surely you won't have an administrator not administering...
Here's an interview with a judge, who says they switched to linux, which provided cost savings:
And here's a goldmine if you need any more (first pdf describes the cost savings they had also)

Have you looked at the CM/ECF (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CM/ECF) ?
That is the killer Linux Application for the courts. The US Federal courts use this for case management.
