it's pretty shocking to me how bad data is at the court level in the US—total mess

clerks quickly entering in data with little or no validation, shortcodes vary by clerk, sometimes misheard from the court room; often times data has gone through multiple messy migrations to new systems; can't connect that data concretely to a person (needs fingerprints, which often aren't taken); etc.

my view on this is watching legal aid try to make sense of it for record clearance eligibility. it's a problem!
