JACKSONVILLE, Fla.-- It's a sign of the times. When the new courthouse opened, it came equipped with some neat little gadgets.
"In the courtrooms now, we have no paper. It's all electronic, all the cases," Clerk of Courts Jim Fuller said.
These monitors are placed in every criminal court room, next to the judge, on the attorney stand, and in the juror's box.
Both the state and defense can use it to pull up exhibits, digital pictures and prove a point using the touchscreen.
In big trials such as the State vs. Taurice Brown, every piece of evidence counts. The old way involved paper and charts, which in some cases, is hard to see. The new technology helps drive home the point a little better.
Fuller says it's working out well for everyone.
"I think it's going to be a big help to the jurors. At least with the evidence they can see what the attorneys are presenting to the court for evidence and really get to see it and understand it," Fuller continued.
The Brown trial is expecting to finish up by the end of the week -- and when it does, some say the new tools will have helped.
"I think it's the way of the future, and here in Duval County, it's working very well."
According to Fuller, the new monitors have saved the court system $250,000, most of those savings come from not having to buy file folders.
