JusticeLink and SCT Join Forces

SCT has announced that it has formed a strategic alliance with JusticeLink (which recently merged with CourtLink).

Under terms of the agreement, Justice- Link will acquire the SCT eFile Management middleware product for $4 million, and become SCT's exclusive electronic filing partner.

Staff from SCT will become employees of CourtLink/Justice-Link to support ongoing design and engineering. SCT will receive an equity stake in the new "Links" company.

SCT eFile complements existing "Links" efforts, say the company, and offers products that integrate e-filing and Web access with a court's case and document management applications.

In 1998, SCT teamed with West Group to offer an integrated software system for e-filing. Under that accord, the two companies agreed to integrate WestFile service with the SCT-installed Banner Courts Case Management System.
