The AOPC’s Unified Judicial System web portal site has recently been redesigned to provide more useful information in an easier-to-navigate format. All aspects of the site, including the look and feel and the technology upon which the site is based, were reprogrammed.
Both public and secure information is available on this site. Secure information is available through specialized e-services for users with a secure login. Approval for these services must be granted by a county clerk of court or district court administrator.
Some of these links are secured to specific groups of users in the court system or law enforcement, while other resources are made available publicly, such as the Public Calendar Schedule, explained on the website.Listed below are some of the e-services available to users:
- Web Docket Sheets provide access to search, view and print the docket sheets for Pennsylvania’s Appellate Courts, Criminal Courts of Common Pleas, Magisterial District Courts and the Philadelphia Municipal Court
- Statewide Warrants provides access to view warrants generated from the Common Pleas Criminal Court Case Management System (CPCMS) and the Magisterial District Judge Management System (MDJS)
- The Calendar Schedule [Criminal Courts of Common Pleas and Magisterial District Courts] provides access to search, view and print case events scheduled in the Common Pleas Criminal Court Case Management System (CPCMS)
- The DA Link application is a secure web service which provides Pennsylvania's district attorneys the ability to construct criminal Informations online and submit them electronically to the Courts of Common Pleas
- The County Court Calendar provides access to view calendars prepared and submitted by participating counties
- Local Rules provides access to search, view and print active Local Rules of Court. The site is currently limited to the local rules mandated by Rules of Civil Procedure 239.1 et seq. [Links, italics, & paragraphing added]
The AOPC website also lists or links calendars for Pennsylvania appellate courts and their support offices in 2012, as follows:
