Public Case History
The Public Case History is a tool that allows you to look up the status of cases in the Supreme Court, Court of Appeals and Court of Criminal Appeals. Before searching the Public Case History, please read the instructions below.
You can search the Public Case History database using one of four items: (1) the first name of a party contained in the title; (2) the last name of a party contained in the title; or (3) the appeal number. For example:
- When searching by first name - You might enter the name, Charles. You will receive all cases that contain the first name of Charles.
- When searching by last name - You might enter the name, Jones. You will receive all cases that contain the last name of Jones.
- When searching by appeal number - You might enter the full appeal number (for example, E2008-02744-COA-R3-CV) or a portion of the number (for example, E2008-02744) - You will receive cases that contain the appeal number entered.
- After you have clicked "OK" and submitted a particular case number, it may take as much as 30 seconds to generate the Public Case History Report.
- Only those appeals in which the record was filed after September 1, 2006 are included in this data base.
- Certain types of appeals are not included; such as parental termination appeals and appeals originating from juvenile court.
- the data contained in the public history is current as of end of the prior business day.
- The public case history does not become accessible until the appellate record is filed in the appellate court
Once you click the link, you will be taken to a separate window.
