A court session is held online due to coronavirus restrictions.

When the pandemic slowed the wheels of justice in March, courts across the U.S. powered up technology and launched virtual courtrooms.

The Ohio Supreme Court awarded $6 million in technology grants to help 277 local courts with needed upgrades.

While jury trials are on hold and backlogs grow, tech innovations have sped up court business, especially routine procedures.

Today on Tech Tuesday: When it comes to online court operations, the jury is still out.
