Clerk of Appellate Courts

The Clerk of Appellate Courts accepts filings for Supreme Court and Court of Appeals cases and provides parties with copies of court orders and opinions. All case filings should be sent to the Clerk’s Office, never to appellate judges directly. The Clerk’s Office notifies parties of any deficiencies in their filings and instructs them on how to make the necessary corrections.

Persons wishing to find out about the status of a case may call 651-296-2581 to obtain case information.
