Finding a Case by Docket Number

You can retrieve a case when you know its docket number:

  1. At the Home page, click Find a Case by Docket Number.

  2. Type the court docket number of the case in the Type a Docket Number text box, select a jurisdiction, and click GO.

    For example, to retrieve a U.S. district court case from Minnesota, type its docket number (e.g., 01-846mjdsrn), select U.S. district courts, select Minnesota from the drop-down list, and click GO.

  3. If you are not already registered or signed on, you will be prompted to do so.

Either the case or a list of cases with the docket number you entered is displayed. If a list is displayed, you are not charged until you click a link to display a case.
