MiCourt Case Search for 15th District Court Records

The Case Search application will not display whether or not a case is in warrant status, i.e. an arrest warrant has been issued.  If you think your case may be in warrant status, you should call the court at 734.794.6750, opt. 0, Mon - Fri, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.  To have a warrant cancelled, you must do one of the following: post a cash bond to receive an arraignment date or turn yourself in on the warrant any Monday between 1 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. or Tuesday-Friday between 8:30 a.m. and 10 a.m. at the 15th Judicial District Court Clerk’s Office in the Ann Arbor Justice Center, Ann Arbor, Michigan, fourth floor, room 431.  You will be arraigned on the warrant. Be prepared to post a bond amount, if required.
The Case Search application will
not display private details such as date of birth.  Additionally, the application will not display information on non-public cases.  There are categories of cases where information about the defendant and case is not available to the public.  Non-public case information will not be given out over the phone.  It is only available to authorized individuals and agencies.   

Tips for Searching

Search by party name to locate the court docket sheet for a specific party name.  The name can be the name of an individual, company or organization.  Enter the name on the search line and then click the Submit button.

  • For an individual, there is no specific name search format required.  The suggested format is Last Name First Name without a comma in between and only one space separting the names.  For example, entering Smith John will will return results for all cases where John and Smith appear within a party name.  If you wish to reduce the number of results, typing Smith/John will only return cases where the last name is Smith and the first name is John. 
  • For a company or an organization, enter a partial name such as ABC for ABC Incorporated.  This will expand the search results to account for possible name variations.   

Search by docket number (also known as case number) to search for a specific case.  Enter the docket number on the search line and click the Search button. Once the search is complete, the docket sheet should be displayed.  

There are filters available such as file date, offense date, court division and case status to help narrow down the results.
