New Hampshire Superior Court launches CaseLines Digital Evidence Center

A new Digital Evidence Management Platform

The New Hampshire Superior Court is bringing digital evidence to all Superior Court civil and criminal cases to expand its electronic filing services. CaseLines Digital Evidence Center (“CaseLines”), a Thomson Reuters product, is a cloud-based court exhibit and evidence management application. Judges, court staff, attorneys, self-represented litigants (SRLs), and other justice partners will be trained to upload, submit, and present evidence in the courtroom during trials and evidentiary hearings. CaseLines will allow New Hampshire to expedite court services and offer constituents more efficient and timely access to justice.

Background

Litigators requested that the court include exhibits in the otherwise fully electronic case file. The NH Superior Court has responded by implementing CaseLines – a state-of-the-art digital evidence center that extends the NH Superior Court’s commitment to technology innovation in the courtroom.

What CaseLines Can Do!

Attorneys and SRLs can leverage CaseLines exhibit management software to organize, annotate, and present all types of evidence in both civil and criminal cases. Efficient exhibit communication driven by CaseLines is expected to support speedier hearings and reduce workload.

CaseLines Benefits

  • All evidence/exhibits are easily accessible online
  • Sharing exhibits with practice administrators, opposing counsel, and the court is easy
  • Evidence viewing equipment provided by the court
  • Extensive exhibit management tools are available to all litigators
  • Mobile access: Easily obtain smartphone exhibits from clients and other case parties

Updates on the CaseLines Pilot

The CaseLines Digital Evidence Management project will roll out in two phases. Phase 1 will exclude jury trials, focusing only on evidentiary hearings and bench trials. Phase 2 will incorporate the jury component. Phase 1 will be implemented one county at a time. Once each county has rolled out Phase 1, Phase 2 will begin with a similar implementation schedule. Rockingham Superior, Strafford Superior, Hillsborough County Superior North and South have rolled out with Phase 1 with great success. Merrimack, Belknap, and Carroll Counties will roll out in the summer/early fall of 2022. Bookmark this page and check back regularly for updates. Judges, litigators, and court staff are learning how to optimize the technology that eliminates burdensome paper copies and facilitates multimedia evidence presentations.
