(Annapolis, MD — March 7, 2006) The Maryland Judiciary announced today that public Internet access to information from case records maintained by the Maryland Judiciary is now available. Introduced after an evaluation period, Phase I of the Maryland Judiciary Case Search (MDJCS) will allow for the fulfillment of information requests commonly received in the court clerks’ offices from attorneys, litigants, and members of the general public.
Information is available on all civil, traffic, and criminal cases in the state except for cases originating in the circuit courts for Prince George’s and Montgomery counties. This information includes defendant name, city and state, case number, date of birth, plaintiff name (civil cases only), trial date, charge, and case disposition. It does not include contact information for victims and witnesses (other than expert witnesses). The amount of historical data may vary by jurisdiction.
While much information is made available to the public through this site, some information may be restricted or require registration to obtain. All of the information collected at this site becomes a public record that may be subject to inspection and copying by members of the public, unless an exemption in law exists.
There is no cost to search MDJCS for individual cases on this site. The link is http://casesearch.courts.state.md.us.
For more information, please call the Court Information Office at (410) 260-1488.
