In the 1970's, I worked for the State of MIchigan court system under a grant from LEAA, a federal program to computerize court records. The agency I worked for employed lots of contractors who regularly "worked" 80 hours a week and produced nothing. We spent millions of dollars, a lot of money in those days, and at the end of had nothing to show for it. LEAA was stopped after about 4 years by Congress. Believe it or not there has been an end to a federal program. My coworkers spread out to various courts in the state and successfully computerized the records in those courts when their budgets were locally controlled.
