Norfolk Circuit Clerk seeks to go paperless

Norfolk Circuit Clerk George Schaefer is overseeing an ambitious project: He wants to make his office paperless. Right now, his staff scans every civil filing that comes in the door. They’ve scanned almost all the land records – which, in an old jurisdiction such as Norfolk, date back to the 1700s. The Virginian-Pilot reports that Schaefer could cut $2 million off the cost of building a new courthouse by reducing the need for storage space.
