Fix Drop Down Menu within Case Retainer/Info Tab

  • Start by going to the Case Retainer Info tab of any case. We recommend you use a “dummy/test” case
  • Under the Atty or Support field, right click and get the fix drop down menu
  • When the menu pops up, under new value replace it with the correct initials 
    • If you want to remove initials completely leave the new value blank

(If you remove initials, you will lose history that the individual was ever assigned to a case or docket entry. You will not lose the actual case or docket item)

  • Hit clean up
  • Refresh the tabs
  • Go to User Tools and select Recreate Atty/Support list to retain the changes
