Current High Profile Cases
Historic/Archived High Profile Cases
Reporters should contact the CIO with questions about a case. The CIO can help reporters access public case records and documents, and provide information about past and future hearings.
MPA Remote provides real-time access to the registers of actions for cases in the district court case management system. The registers of actions include court dates (past and future), party information, and a list of documents that have been filed. The actual documents are not accessible online through MPA Remote. Minnesota Court Records Online
provides online access to many public district court documents. Many public court documents can also be obtained at any courthouse in the state by accessing the case through a public terminal using MPA Courthouse. Searching for cases in MPA Courthouse does not require a case number, but please note that pending criminal cases (cases that have not yet resulted in a conviction) are only accessible through MPA Remote if a search is conducted by case number. Defendant name searches will not yield results for pending cases under that name.
