Appellate case search gets new look

If you like the changes made to the Indiana Roll of Attorneys search function, you’ll appreciate the upgrades made to the appellate case search tool.

The Indiana Judicial Branch rolled out an upgraded appellate case search application  Wednesday with the hope of making the search process easier for users.

The new search function is in a beta test and is accessible by clicking on “Appellate case search” under the “Services” section on the court’s homepage. Both the new version and the current search systems will be accessible through that link.

Indiana Supreme Court Public Information Officer Kathryn Dolan said the courts are keeping both systems up to allow people to use whatever version they are most comfortable with, although eventually the current search system will be taken down.

Highlights from the upgraded case search include:
-    Simple and advanced searches
-    Finding all of a specific type of case, such as capital appeals before the Supreme Court or juvenile delinquency cases before the Court of Appeals
-    Navigating between the search page, the results, and case details by using built-in navigation or web browser navigation
-    Organizing events in the case in chronological or reverse chronological order

The upgrade has a similar look to the one made earlier this year to the Roll of Attorneys.

In addition to the upgraded search, users can answer a 10-question survey to provide the courts feedback on the new model.

I had some trouble navigating the search when using the “back” button on my browser. It took me back to the original search screen and displayed a message that said “Please wait while we search for cases that match your criteria.” It was stuck on that screen, so I had to make my way back to the original search screen by hitting the “forward” button on my browser, then clicking “new search.”

Dolan did emphasize that this new search tool is a work in progress and feedback from users will help developers with any necessary changes.

Despite some bugs, I already appreciate this search tool much more than the current one, which is not quite user friendly.

What do you think about the upgrades?

  1. Thanks Jim. We surprised ourselves with the first album, so we did a second one. We are releasing it 6/30/17 at the HiFi. The reviews so far are amazing! www.itsjustcraig.com Skope Mag: It’s Just Craig offers a warm intimacy with the tender folk of “Dark Corners”. Rather lovely in execution, It’s Just Craig opts for a full, rich sound. Quite ornate instrumentally, the songs unfurl with such grace and style. Everything about the album feels real and fully lived. By far the highlight of the album are the soft smooth reassuring vocals whose highly articulate lyrics have a dreamy quality to them. Stories emerge out of these small snapshots of reflective moments.... A wide variety of styles are utilized, with folk anchoring it but allowing for chamber pop, soundtrack work, and found electronics filtering their way into the mix. Without a word, It’s Just Craig sets the tone of the album with the warble of “Intro”. From there things get truly started with the hush of “Go”. Building up into a great structure, “Go” has a kindness to it. Organs glisten in the distance on the fragile textures of “Alone” whose light melody adds to the song’s gorgeousness. A wonderful bloom of color defines the spaciousness of “Captain”. Infectious grooves take hold on the otherworldly origins of “Goodnight” with precise drum work giving the song a jazzy feeling. Hazy to its very core is the tragedy of “Leaving Now”. By far the highlight of the album comes with the closing impassioned “Thirty-Nine” where many layers of sound work together possessing a poetic quality.

  2. what a wonderful world we are living, i still doubt this spell caster how he did it!!! i am Tamara Barrow am from USA I am so happy to let the whole word know how this powerful spell caster saved my marriage.Everything was going down the drain as my husband can not stop cheating on me with other women. It became used to always heating on me. I tried to make him stop, but I couldn't help the situation, the more I tried, the harder it becomes. At times we will fight and go apart for some months and we will come back again just because of our kids. One day a friend told me about this spell caster who helped her too, his name is Dr.voodoo, she said he uses white magic spells to solve spiritual problems. I decided to give it a try, I contacted him and he told me it will take just 2 to 3 days and I will see great changes in my husband. He actually cast a spell, believe me after 2 to 3 days of the spell, my husband was confessing different names of woman he has slept with. He begged for forgiveness and never to try it again. From that day till now, my mind is at rest. My husband dislike every other women on earth except me. And am so happy to have him for myself alone.The spell caster’s contact his email at: voodoospelltemple66@gmail.com visit his website on http://drvodoospelltemple.webs.com

  3. Andrew, if what you report is true, then it certainly is newsworthy. If what you report is false, then it certainly is newsworthy. Any journalists reading along??? And that same Coordinator blew me up real good as well, even destroying evidence to get the ordered wetwork done. There is a story here, if any have the moxie to go for it. Search ADA here for just some of my experiences with the court's junk yard dog. https://www.scribd.com/document/299040062/Brown-ind-Bar-memo-Pet-cert Yep, drive by shootings. The lawyers of the Old Dominion got that right. Career executions lacking any real semblance of due process. It is the ISC way ... under the bad shepard's leadership ... and a compliant, silent, boot-licking fifth estate.

  4. Journalism may just be asleep. I pray this editorial is more than just a passing toss and turn. Indiana's old boy system of ruling over attorneys is cultish. Unmask them oh guardians of democracy.
