How can Protection Order documents be viewed in JABS in accordance with E2SHB 1320?
The Case and Person Orders tabs in JABS have been enhanced with the ability to allow judicial officers to view the docket/event code information associated with public Protection Orders, as well as the document image. A new cross-court profile has been created in JIS specifically for judicial officers to allow them to view these documents for courts other than their own. This security profile and function is available for judicial officers only.
A new Protection Orders column will display on both the Person Orders and Case Orders tab, with a Documents hyperlink.
When the Documents hyperlink is clicked, the tab displays the docket/event code information associated with the protection order, and a document icon. When the document icon is clicked, the document will display in a separate window.
Sealed and Confidential Cases
- If a case has a sealed or confidential protection order document, an error will return when the document icon is clicked stating that the document is not public.
- If a user has sealed case access, the Documents hyperlink will display on both the Case and Person Orders tabs.
- If a user does not have sealed case access, the Documents hyperlink will only display on the Person Orders tab.
- If a protection order exists on a confidential case, the Documents hyperlink will display on both the Case and Person Orders tabs. When the document icon is clicked, an error message will appear.
Cases without a Protection Order entered into JIS or Odyssey
Prior to July 1, 2022, cases such as Extreme Risk Protection Orders and Enforcement of Canadian Protection Orders did not have protection orders entered into the system, but instead relied on the entry of docket codes. Documents for these protection order types are still available on the Case and Person Orders tabs. View them by clicking the Documents hyperlink, and then the document icon associated with the docket code.
