How do I find a docket?

In Trellis you will find the dockets for each case. Sometimes we won’t have a tentative ruling for the case but you can glean a lot of information from the docket.

To find a docket click on the Smart Search button and enter your search term. Be sure to choose your state at the end of the search bar. The dockets that have that term will appear. If you like you can scroll down and enter a party, case name, case number, or date range. Note, you don’t have to fill in all the information in a field. Nor do you have to fill in all the fields.

For example:

  • judge:fujie AND sanction
  • (party:”Johnson, Stella” OR party:”Stella Johnson”) AND “summary judgment” [also good for finding opposing counsel]
  • BC627574 AND dismiss AND NOT (pregnancy OR pregnant)
