Clerk's Office Recognized as  a Leader in Statewide Case Reporting Overhaul

Clerk's Office recognized by the Florida Supreme Court as being a leader in statewide case reporting overhaul

The Supreme Court of Florida Chief Justice Charles Canady held a Zoom meeting with five clerks of the circuit court from across the state to congratulate their efforts to replace the judicial branch’s decades’ old case reporting system.

Clerk Cindy Stuart was recognized as being one of five pioneering Florida Clerks in moving the Uniform Case Reporting (UCR) project forward, replacing a system in place since the 1990s, with a more modern, near real-time application that will provide consistent and accurate reporting data.

In 2016, the Supreme Court of Florida described the UCR project as “represent[ing] a much needed modernization of the older case reporting requirements.”  “This work is vital, not just to courts, but to the people we serve,” said Chief Justice Charles T. Canady.

Chief Justice Charles Canady thanked Clerk Stuart for her dedication to the UCR project. He also thanks Hillsborough County Clerk staff Angela Gary, Preena Thomas, Ivan Prokopovich, Shannon Bickford, Robert Rocamora, and Tim Berry for their work on the project.

Cindy Stuart is the Clerk of Court & Comptroller of Hillsborough County.
