The Maryland Judiciary Case Search offers information  and access to the public, government officials, private attorneys to the case records of the Maryland Judiciary. Access to these records is governed by Maryland Rules 16-1001 through 16-101 and is effective October 1, 2004.

To be able to search the Maryland Judiciary Case Search, you must consent to the following conditions:

In Maryland, laws exist to ensure that state government is open and that the public has access to appropriate records and information in its possession.  At the same time, both state and federal laws provide exceptions that serve various needs, including the privacy of individuals.

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. 

The information available through the Maryland Judiciary Case Search (MDJCS) database may be limited in SCOPE (extent of information available), HISTORY (years of available information), TIME (how quickly information is updated), and RELIABILITY (general accuracy of information). 

I.  Scope of Information
Information is available on all civil, traffic, and criminal cases in the state.  This information includes defendant name, city and state, case number, date of birth, plaintiff name (civil cases only), trial date, charge, and case disposition.

II.  Historical Information
All information contained in the MDJCS database originates in the individual counties where the case is filed, and is available for the period that each county has maintained an automated case management system.  The amount of historical information may vary by county based on when an automated case management system was deployed in that county and how the system has evolved.

III.  Timeliness of Information
MDJCS case data is updated regularly, with these limitations:
i. Information originating or maintained within the District Court system and the Circuit Court of Baltimore City is entered after the close of each court day, and is available online the following day (the date displayed on the “Case Display” screen indicates the date information was last updated).
ii. Information originating or maintained within the Circuit Courts of all Maryland counties, other than Baltimore City, Montgomery and Prince George’s counties, is available online at the approximate time that it is entered in the records of that court. 

IV.  Reliability of Information
This site reflects the electronic record of the cases presented and may not always reflect the information maintained within the official case file.  The data may not be reliable in the sense that further action may occur in the case that would affect the record.

If you believe information provided is inaccurate, please send written notice to the court where the original record was created or filed.  For courthouse locations and contact information, please visit:
Circuit Court Locations: http://mdcourts.gov/circuit/directory.html
District Court Locations: http://mdcourts.gov/district/directories/courtmap.html

Note:  Requests for corrections will not be accepted by telephone.

The Maryland Judiciary, its agencies, officers, or employees do not guarantee the accuracy, reliability or timeliness of any information contained in this system.  Users rely on this information at their own risk.

Once you agree to the conditions of the website and the Maryland Judiciary Case Search you will be directed to a page that allows you to search by name or company.  Most likely, if you are looking for a criminal case or a person that has been charged or yourself, you will want to keep the search to “person”.  If you are trying to find out a civil case or a company search, then you will check the “company” bubble.

If you have chosen to search for a person, you would enter their last name and then first name.  The website only requires that you enter their last name.  Any common spelling on names will produce a list of a maximum of 500 listings.

If you only know the last name of the person, then you may want to use the other sections to limit your search.  You can choose which jurisdiction, party type, type of case: “All Case Types” “Civil”   “Criminal” “Traffic” “Citation Only”.

You can also search by a date range or a specific date.  If you know which date the case was charged or an approximate date then you can enter that information and limit the search.

A useful tip is that once you have a list of names, you should view the information by the date the case is entered into the system.  This will allow you to determine which case you are looking for by date ranges.

If you have been charged with a criminal offense or you have been injured in a car accident, truck accident, or through the negligence of another person, contact me to discuss your case and schedule a free inital consultation.
