Chesterfield Courts Seek Input on Technology Upgrades and Digital Evidence

Chief Judges T.J. Hauler, Keith N. Hurley, and Scott D. Landry and Clerks of Court Wendy S. Hughes, Linda J. Moore, and Laura G. Griffin of the Twelfth Judicial Circuit announced that they are seeking attorney input on two initiatives: the upgrade of technology inside courtrooms and the areas within the courts, and improvements to the facilities of the courthouses themselves as they pertain to safety, efficiency, technology, workload, and operations.

Currently, the Chesterfield Circuit, General District, and Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Courts had the 5th, 7th, and 3rd highest number of new caseload filings in 2018, respectively, among all localities in Virginia, with a forecast for continued growth over the next 20 years.

Any lawyers interested in providing feedback regarding technology may attend a June 5, 2019, 3:00 PM focus group at the main courthouse, Office of the Commonwealth’s Attorney, or may answer the questions in the following survey.

The survey link will remain open until 11:59 PM, June 10, 2019.

If you have additional information you’d like to provide to the Courts’ project manager, please email Martin Gruen at

Additional information regarding facility improvement feedback will be solicited at a later date.
