Each person requesting access to Odyssey® Case Management System must complete an application. If access is requested for a state agency employee, an authorized agency representative must approve the application. Applications must be sent to the State Court Administrator’s Office for review and approval. If approved, the State Court Administrator’s staff will assign user IDs and access levels for the user.

Access

All users granted access to the Odyssey® Case Management System agree to be bound by the following terms of access:

Eligibility: Attorney access to electronic documents is based on the attorney’s status as a licensed North Dakota lawyer in good standing. Attorneys must notify the North Dakota Court System if their status as a lawyer in good standing changes.

State agency user access is based on the user’s continued employment by the State of North Dakota. Upon a state agency user’s termination of employment, the agency must notify the Director of Technology so that the user’s ID may be deleted.

Confidentiality: State agency users may not disclose any non-public information retrieved from the system to any third party and will use the system only for official business. Attorney users are bound by the N.D. Rules of Prof. Conduct in using information retrieved from the system.

State agency users may not distribute, directly or indirectly, any information obtained from the system except in the course of official business.

Passwords and User IDs: Passwords and user IDs are issued by the North Dakota Court System for a specific individual’s use and/or purpose. The user may elect to share their user ID and password with colleagues who are employed with the user’s firm or agency and are using the system and court data for a common purpose/interest. When a colleague leaves employment, the user who was issued the original user ID and password must take appropriate steps to change their password immediately. For security purposes, the North Dakota Court System will periodically expire each password.

Security: Users must take reasonable steps to ensure the security and integrity of the information system, including passwords and user IDs. If a password or user ID is compromised, the North Dakota Court System’s technology department must be informed immediately.

Availability is subject to periods of downtime caused by maintenance or other factors. Uninterrupted access is not guaranteed and time periods of availability may vary.

System Resources: The North Dakota Court System is the primary user of the system and as the primary user receives the highest priority for system resources.
