There is no doubt that the government is a mess when it comes to the digital age. The unfortunate fact is, most people haven't adopted it as much as we'd like to believe. The average person in the digital age wants things to work right out of the box exactly as described on the box and in the commercials. Anything more complicated than that is too complicated... knowing this, it's no surpirse that this is what you see in the judicial system. The truth is, the three branches of government in the US (and the goverments in every other country, for that matter) have to start getting more digitally competent. This is why people predict this digital dark age... so few people know or even care how their electronics work and it's affecting us negatively.
