MPA Remote (MN Public Access) offers access to case information over the internet for certain court records in the Minnesota Court Information System (MNCIS). The information is limited as described in the MN Rules of Public Access to Records of the Judicial Branch. Information in MPA Remote is not the "official" court record. Court documents cannot be viewed in MPA Remote at this time. For criminal "background checks," please contact the MN Bureau of Criminal Apprehension.

Want to see court documents? Court documents (except confidential or sealed) in many case types can be viewed online at no charge when using the MNCIS computers at select county courthouses. » Learn more...
