Courts lose computers
SOUTHPORT courthouse was forced back in time yesterday after a statewide computer outage hit.
A Department of Justice and Attorney-General spokeswoman said the outage of the criminal database struck at about 10am.
The computer issues meant the court was unable to search and update files.
“Manual procedures are currently in place to mitigate the impact on court operations,” the spokeswoman said.
“There is no risk of longterm data loss.”
Staff were working night to resolve the issue. last
