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 through the case management system of the Appellate Court Clerk’s Office known as C-Track. In addition to providing information about the status and procedural history of an appeal, you will be able to directly access all motions, orders, judgments and opinions filed in the appellate courts after August 26, 2013. Furthermore, many of the orders filed in the appellate courts prior to that date will also be accessible as they have been transferred from the legacy case management system to C-Track. These documents are in PDF format and linked to the particular event in the Public Case History. Before searching the Public Case History, please read the instructions below.
