COVINGTON, Ky. (AP) -- Kentucky is pushing to digitize court records and eventually make them more accessible to the public.

State Supreme Court Justice Michelle Keller says the goal is to get all 120 Kentucky counties and all types of cases operating on a single system by the end of 2015. Keller, chair of the courts' Technology Governance Committee and leader of this effort, says e-filing simplifies work for court clerks, judges and attorneys.

Keller told The Kentucky Enquirer (http://cin.ci/UpWfFs) all of these efficiencies will reduce the cost of doing business in the courts.

She does not believe it will cost court employees their jobs because most offices are already understaffed.

Kenton County went online Wednesday, joining Boone, Campbell, Gallatin and Franklin counties providing the service for civil cases.
