From the Office of the Franklin County Prosecuting Attorney

To Defense Counsel handling drug unit and white collar crime unit cases in Franklin County:

In an effort to streamline justice system operations within Franklin County, we are providing an electronic discovery web portal, MatrixDiscovery, for your use free of charge. MatrixDiscovery provides the following benefits:

  • Instant access to all of your discovery for cases pending with our office via a secure web portal.
  • The ability to electronically generate and send a demand for discovery to the prosecutor's office.
  • The ability to view your discovery anywhere that you have access to the internet.
  • Files delivered electronically in common file formats (including Adobe PDF) so you can store them for future use, (CD/DVDs and record checks completed by LEADS will have to be picked up from the front desk on the 15th floor but you will be notified electronically when you have something ready for pickup).
  • Email notifications whenever new discovery is available.
  • No cost to you.
This process will start on July 28, 2014. Our office will continue to provide your discovery through the current method for one week, through August 15, 2014. After such time, discovery materials will only be delivered through MatrixDiscovery.

A training session on the use of MatrixDiscovery will be provided for defense attorneys by Teri Ingleright from Matrix. Please attend one of the following:

Wednesday, July 23rd from 2:00-2:45 and 3:00-3:45 in the 16th Floor Columbus Room.
