This is wonderful and would be a great accomplishment if implemented successfully.

CM/ECF is used (nearly) nationwide and has been utilized to process millions of filings in U.S. District and Bankruptcy Courts over the years. Even U.S. Appellate Courts have begun to go live with this system. It provides court case management, public access, electronic filing and noticing, with a uniform user interface.

Across the country state judiciaries have made the mistake of developing their software from scratch, which has resulted in great delays, wasted money, and produced inferior products. Additionally, a small number of states instead of building their own system, allowed vendors to develop software for them, which in one state has resulted in a court case information monopoly, and high fees for the public.

I applaud Mississippi for making the logical decision to try to use the existing CM/ECF product in their state courts!

What ever. If a private business messes up you get somebody else to do it. I'm from Ms. and this is an attempt to kill business opportunities.
