Come Monday, 77 of 100 counties will be on eCourts



(The Center Square) – With the launch of 10 more on Monday, North Carolina will have just 23 counties to go in transferring all 100 to the electronic courts system.

Alamance, Chatham, Durham, Franklin, Granville, Guilford, Orange, Person, Vance and Warren counties are scheduled to go live as part of what is deemed Track 4. Next in July will be a contingent in the far southwestern corner of the state, followed in the fall by a southern border group of counties between Fayetteville and Charlotte.

The state’s spending on the project from 2019-29 is about $100 million. Implementation delays, according to published reports, have trimmed that cost about $6 million.

The official first launch was started Feb. 13 in Wake, Johnston, Harnett and Lee counties. Those four counties were part of a February 2023 test pilot, with Mecklenburg County added Oct. 9. Reviews were not flattering.

Monday’s group of counties represents the track with the most legal filings.

The system used is called Odyssey. Ryan Boyce, of the Administrative Office of the Court, earlier this month told the Joint Legislative Oversight Committee on Justice and Public Safety there have been issues but the rollout has improved. Large software updates are troublesome, he said.
