Case Search​ 

The Case Search feature allows public access to electronic Court records of the Michigan Supreme Court and the Michigan Court of Appeals. Offered as a courtesy to users, this system provides case information and status for cases filed from the mid-1980s to the present. Case information is updated nightly, but the entry of documents on the docket may be delayed due to internal processing procedures or staffing issues.

 

Searches for case information can be initiated by supplying a party name, a docket number, or attorney information. 
Case Search Tips are available.

 

Case information will usually include links to unpublished Court of Appeals opinions issued since July 1996, Michigan Supreme Court opinions and published Court of Appeals opinions issued since January 2001, Court of Appeals orders issued after January 1, 2005, and Supreme Court orders issued after September 21, 2005.

 

Note: Instructions are available on How to Read a Docket Sheet; this provides an explanation of some of the abbreviations and terms used in a docket sheet.
