PA Courts Launch PAeDocket, First State Mobile App For Finding Court Dockets

Finding public court information is easier than ever with the launch of PAeDocket – a free iPhone and iPad app that provides a quick and simple search of court cases or dockets, Supreme Court Justice J. Michael Eakin announced Tuesday.
The app provides results about cases, including charges, court dates, upcoming hearings and status of cases. PAeDocket offers a visually engaging and easy-to-use mobile experience.
“We are excited about utilizing mobile apps to provide a valuable service for the public, including lawyers, law enforcement, consumers, victims and victims’ families,” said Justice Eakin. “Pennsylvania is once again a pioneer in advancing technology, as the first state-level judiciary to launch a mobile app docket search of case information from multiple levels of the courts.”
PAeDocket makes looking for Pennsylvania case information fast and easy. Application users can search: Case number; Participant name; Organization name; Offense tracking number; Police incident or complaint number; and State ID number.
According to Justice Eakin, “Staying competitive by using state-of-the-art technology helps the courts offer easy access to court records – and mobile apps keep us on that cutting edge.”
Development has begun on an Android version of PAeDocket, which should be released later this year. The judiciary also offers a mobile version of the website for smartphones across multiple platforms.
Docket searches can also be performed directly on the mobile or full version of the PA Courts website.
To download the application, visit the iTunes stores and search for “PAeDocket.” The judiciary reminds drivers not to access PAeDocket while driving.
