Clerk of Court Paper-to-Digital Litigation Project Begins. "Converting hundreds of cubic feet of paper-to-digital images to be subsequently stored on a computer hard drive is a viable solution to the avalanche of paper sorted by several generations of deputy court clerks and generated by hundreds of lawyers over the past century to solve a critical storage space problem at the Wise County Court House. The files contain hundreds of thousands of legal disputes resolved by the court, settled or dropped with few ever revisiting the files again as the years pass. Most must be kept largely intact by state law and for historic preservation. The space consumed by the storage is daunting. The task of how to create more storage within a limited space is perplexing to local record managers. . ."
