New wave of technology comes to Montgomery County courtrooms
One can't help but notice the latest arrival to a Montgomery County courtroom.  As it's wheeled into place, jurors and spectators alike are wowed by its size and significance. The SMART Board, with an 87-inch screen and an estimated weight of about 1,000 pounds, is an impressive presence in the county's technological arsenal aimed at making the courtroom more efficient and interactive.  "The use of technology and expanded use of technology has been an emphasis of our courts for the last several years," said Michael R. Kehs, the county's court administrator since 1999, adding the SMART Board acquisition is another component of the court system's ongoing technological advances. "Technology is not only the future of the courts but it's the present and we use it every single day."
