Michigan Holds Virtual Court
David F. Viviano is the 109th Justice of the Michigan Supreme Court. He was appointed by Governor Rick Snyder in 2013 and elected to complete the remainder of his term in 2014. He is the Supreme Court’s point-person for judicial training and statewide e-filing. Justice Viviano has participated in a number of initiatives to improve the administration of justice.
According to Justice Viviano the expanded use of videoconferencing technology to create “virtual” courtrooms has saved the Michigan Department of Corrections (MDOC) nearly $5 million over the past two years. Because of this technology initiative, prisoners can participate in court hearings without the security risks and traditional costs involved in transporting them to court. Currently, 417 courtrooms in Michigan have videoconferencing capabilities. Since its launch in 2010, the program has expanded so that high definition videoconferencing is installed in at least one circuit, district and probate court in all 83 counties. Seventy-eight counties now have videoconferencing systems in every courtroom.
