2009 Press Releases


(504) 310-2590

 SEPTEMBER 23, 2009


Christian W. Andrieu, Chief Information Officer (CIO) within the Judicial Administrator’s Office of the Louisiana Supreme Court, announced his retirement today after 13 years of service to the state judiciary. As CIO, Andrieu has been the chief information technology adviser to the Judicial Administrator and represents the state judiciary in various statewide and national projects. Specifically, he has worked to implement, maintain and enhance the Case Management Information System (CMIS) project of the Louisiana judiciary, a project created under the direction of Judicial Administrator Hugh M. Collins, Ph.D.

Under Andrieu’s stewardship, CMIS key initiatives included: the Louisiana Court Connection, a Supreme Court Judicial Administrator’s Office web-based, centrally hosted, city court case management system that is designed to benefit city courts by providing automated assistance at every stage of court case processing; the Criminal Records Project, which has been successful in sending final disposition records to the Department of Public Safety for inclusion in their Computerized Criminal History database — CMIS now houses more than 3,425,887 records in the criminal record repository; and the Louisiana Protective Order Registry (LPOR), a statewide repository of court orders issued to prohibit domestic abuse and dating violence and aid law enforcement, prosecutors and the courts in handling such matters — in 2007 LPOR was awarded the FBI Criminal Justice Information Services Assistant Director’s Award for Outstanding Contribution to State and Local Public Safety. Additionally, Andrieu worked with state courts and the Louisiana District Attorneys Association to get electronic criminal and traffic data to CMIS. CMIS now currently receives criminal data from 61 of 64 district courts and traffic dispositions from 41 state courts. Finally, in furtherance of CMIS’ objective to help improve court performance, he spearheaded the standardization of data collection and reporting from the trial and appellate courts to CMIS.

Andrieu’s retirement becomes effective December 1, 2009. Hugh M. Collins, Ph.D., Judicial Administrator, Louisiana Supreme Court will take over as the Interim Chief Information Officer at that time. A national search will be conducted to find a permanent replacement.
