Fulton Chief Judge Cassandra Kirk Uses Technology To Connect Court Users

Maggie, the Magistrate Court ChatBot,
Enhances Court Reach and Improves Customer Service

Under Chief Magistrate Judge Cassandra Kirk’s leadership, the Magistrate Court of Fulton County has worked diligently to create an environment where community members are informed, engaged, and empowered throughout the Court processes. As the national pandemic and statewide judicial emergencies have created confusion for court users, the Magistrate Court paired with TextGov, a court technology leader, to stand up the most productive chatbot that TextGov provides court systems across the state.
“Our chatbot Maggie has been able to handle over 15,000 conversations in the past year. That has allowed our administrative staff more time to assist with complicated issues,” said Chief Magistrate Judge Cassandra Kirk.
Maggie, the Chatbot, handled 79% of the conversations directly. From the over 15,000 conversations last year, only 1,026 tickets were submitted, and only 245 requested a transfer to a member of the court administrative team to get their questions answered. Maggie is available 24X7, enabling constituents to get immediate answers to their Magistrate Court questions.
“Judge Kirk is a leader in adopting innovative technologies like Maggie the ChatBot to improve customer service and efficiency in the court,” said Steve Handel, Managing Partner TextGov.

Voter Protection Groups Sue State of Georgia to Restore 198,000 Names Purged from Voter Rolls


Hollywood’s Rosario Dawson Joins Fight to Find the Vanished Voters of Georgia and Encourage Re-Registration by December 7

ATLANTA—December 1, 2020—Black Voters Matter, in addition to The Georgia Coalition for a People’s Agenda, and the Transformative Justice Coalition are suing the State of Georgia to return voters wrongly purged from the polls, an illegal act that occurred prior to the general election. The announcement of this lawsuit will occur during a ZOOM press conference on December 2 / 11AM ET.

The plaintiffs LaTosha Brown of Black Voters Matter, Helen Butler executive director of The Georgia Coalition for a People’s Agenda, and Barbara Arnwine founder of the Transformative Justice Coalition, will be represented by Atlanta-based legal counsel Gerald Griggs.

This lawsuit is based on the expert reporting of The Palast Investigative Fund and the official report that was released in September 2020 which proved that 198,000 Georgians were illegally purged from voter rolls, their registration canceled, and their voices silenced. Palast provided evidence that voters of color were the targets of this attack and the ethnic cleansing of the voter rolls was launched by Brian Kemp and executed by Secretary of State (SOS) Brad Raffensperger.

According to the SOS’s office, these voters were removed on grounds they had submitted “change of address” forms to the USPS—a claim the Palast report refuted. These are the same voters who the SOS argued were on the National Change of Address (NCOA)—but they aren’t. The SOS’s error was in using a change-of-address list, provided by Total Data Technologies of Nebraska, which is not a qualified licensee of the USPS. The National Voter Registration Act explicitly requires that registration cancellations from the NCOA come from a Postal Service “licensee.”

Wednesday’s press conference will also include the release of a PSA voiced by Hollywood’s Rosario Dawson for Georgians to check if they have been purged on the website SaveMyVote.org.

The Palast Investigative Fund is a 501c3 non-partisan not-for-profit foundation headed by Greg Palast, an investigative journalist whose award-winning reports have appeared in Rolling Stone, Salon.com, Al Jazeera, the Guardian, and BBC TV.
