KUHF-88.7’s Rod Rice has a story on a topic that seems altogether rare these days: government showing some initiative and getting something right. Here’s an excerpt:

It is not a requirement in Harris County, but even so, the District Clerk’s office has set a state record for the number of civil court documents and lawsuits filed electronically. Rod Rice reports.

It happened on April 13th when the office processed 455 electronic case files. Harris County District Clerk Loren Jackson says electronic filing has a number of benefits. The most important is access.

“The one thing that we’re looking to do here in the District Clerk’s office is from the time a case is filed, to have that case filing available online for public consumption within 24 hours, that’s our goal.”

It would seem that kudos are in order for Mr. Jackson and his staff.
