Case Search Release Notes


 Releases through December 1, 2017

We have transitioned the MiCOURT Suite Tools to a cloud-based environment. Our Azure government-cloud servers are safe (FIPS-140 and CJIS compliant), reliable and will allow us to provide access to our applications to any and all JIS courts without impacting performance or reliability. Current users should not be impacted by this move.

  • Case Search is now available for all courts using a JIS case management system (CCS, DCS, PCS, TCS).
    • If you have previously requested Case Search, our Service Delivery team will be in contact with you soon to complete set up!
  • Current users of MiCOURT Case Search were previously notified of the need to update the link on their website to the new link, starting with micourt.courts.michigan. The version hosted on MCAP will soon be terminated and older links will no longer work.
  • Courts using the HATS service (certain courts hosted by JIS) for case inquiry or calendar look-up are being automatically set up with Case Search and the Public URL. 


Released September 27, 2017

  • The mobile view of Case Search is now fully responsive, across all screens.


 Released August 31, 2017

  • For TCS Courts, name searches will no longer include bondsman in the search results.
  • For PCS: Juvenile courts, charge details will now be included on the Case Details screen.


 Released May 18, 2017

  • Searching for names with multiple words (e.g., West Michigan Imaging) will now correctly display search results.
    • Previously, searching for business names with more than one word would return zero results. The search application was considering the phrase as a first name and last name in error.
  • Probate case types are now included in the Search Results for courts using the TCS Case Management System.
    • The Case Details screen for Probate cases will be updated in future releases.
    • Probate has been added as a Division filter.
    • Mental Illness (MI), Judicial Admission (JA), Registration of Foreign Birth (BR), Wills for Safekeeping and all Adoption cases are excluded along with any case marked Non-Public.

    • On mobile devices, a long press on the Court Address may open the default map application depending on the phone and operating system.

    • Bond set and posted amounts were being used in the calculation in error.
