How long does a case display on the Judicial Branch Website?

While every effort is made to assure the data is accurate and current, the Judicial Branch does not warrant the accuracy of the information contained herein nor is it responsible for any errors or omissions and assumes no liability for its use, availability or compatibility with website users’ software or computers.
The information on the case look-up pages is not the official record of the court and should not be used as a substitute for a criminal background check.
The user is responsible for verifying information provided on this website against official court information filed at the court of record.
