In 2014, the San Bernardino Superior Court recognized that to provide efficient, transparent, accessible service to the public, a new case management system was required. After an intensive selection process, the industry leading Tyler Technologies “Odyssey” case management system was chosen as the best fit to serve the needs of the San Bernardino County residents. The court joins other California trial courts, including: San Diego, Monterey, Napa, Orange, Los Angeles, Santa Clara, Fresno, San Luis Obispo, Kings, Santa Barbara and Merced counties that have purchased the Tyler system through a state-wide Master Services Agreement.
On February 16, 2016, the San Bernardino Superior Court launched the use of the Tyler Technologies “Odyssey” case management system to manage criminal and traffic cases across the entire County of San Bernardino. As part of the migration to the new case management system, information from more than four million existing cases was converted. Case data became available through the website on February 20, 2016. The initial availability of case information did not include detailed minutes of individual hearings. The Court worked diligently within the parameters of the California Rules of Court to provide remote access to minutes in criminal and traffic cases. These detailed minutes for hearings prior to February 16, 2016 became available on March 4, 2016. The Court is currently working to provide access to detailed minutes for hearings held after February 16, 2016 and anticipates having these records available through its website shortly. Normal public access to court records at court locations has been maintained throughout this conversion process. Media requests for case information may be directed to our Public Information Office.
The court has maintained an ongoing commitment to provide the public with nocharge, online access to case information as permitted under the California Rules of Court.
