MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The last Wisconsin county is moving closer to putting court records online.
Seventy-one of the state’s 72 counties offer publicly accessible court schedules and case details online through the 20-year-old Consolidated Court Automation Program, or CCAP. The only county that didn’t use it was Portage County.
A state courts spokesman says Wednesday saying the county started using CCAP record management and electronic filing on Monday. Court records will become go online over the next few months as court staff verify records converted from the county’s old system are accurate.
Portage County Clerk Patricia Cal Baker said in a statement her staff and state analysts converted more than 180,000 files that date back as far as 25 years. A message left at the clerk’s office late Wednesday afternoon wasn’t immediately returned.
