CourtXML Schema

Last updated - 05/06/2015


A set of XML schemas has been developed to provide the data interface for the Court Integration Services. We use the term CourtXML as a general term to refer to these schemas.

CourtXML is a court centric view of justice information. We recognize that alternate views of this same data exist that may be more suitable to the consumer of our data. Providing court data in XML format with a published CourtXML schema permits consumers to readily transform court data into formats and structures most appropriate to their business practices and technologies.

There are 3 different classifications of CourtXML schemas:

  • Base Schema: A single schema file named CourtXML_#.xsd, where # corresponds to the version, that contains the types that are used to build the messages used by Court Integration Services.
  • Simple Type Schemas: A set of schema files (referenced by the CourtXML base schema) that contain lists of values that are used to restrict the set of possible values for certain elements.
  • Message Schemas: A schema that defines the input and output messages for a given service.


Over time schemas will need to be updated and new versions of schemas will be published. Court Integration Services will process message based on prior versions of schemas for a minimum of 6 months after a new version has been published providing time for consumers to migrate their applications to use the new version.

Update Notification

While current versions of the CourtXML schemas are available in the download section below, consumers desiring timely notification of updates may wish to subscribe to the RSS Feed Court's Integration Services RSS Feed. This RSS Feed provides notification of updated schemas and other documentation. Note: SimpleType schemas and companion files have separate RSS feeds.

Schema Versioning Strategy and Policy

Please review the Judicial Branch's schema versioning strategy and policies.


Once downloaded, schemas may need to be updated to fit within your file structure.
