November 20th, 2017 – Mentis Technology Solutions, LLC, developer of the judicial dashboard and eBench application aiSMARTBENCH® has donated a handcrafted combination judge’s bench, clerk station and witness stand to the National Judicial College. The unit has been installed in a classroom at the college’s Reno, Nevada, headquarters, where it will be used for courtroom simulations.

“We are delighted with this gift from Mentis,” said NJC President Benes Aldana. “Our judicial curriculum includes several sessions involving mock trials and other simulations, so we will put it to good use.”

The bench combination was commissioned in 2011 for use in Mentis’ Tallahassee, Florida, office. It was used to showcase the judge-friendly software in a courtroom setting for visiting Florida judges. With aiSmartBench being adopted in more than 180 jurisdictions nationwide, it seemed appropriate for the courtroom setting to find a home beyond just Florida.

Leo LaCascia, president and founder of Mentis said, “With the National Judicial College focused on equipping judges across the nation with the knowledge and skills they need to be well informed and more effective, it seemed a perfect home for this much-loved, beautifully-crafted bench.”
