Superior Court Case Search, http://www.courts.wa.gov/jis/jis_superior/

The Washington Courts website now offers case and docket information for the State's superior courts.

Two search options are offered:

  1. Search by Name. Choose the county, case type (civil, criminal, domestic, judgment, juvenile offender, or probate/guardianship), and date range and then input last name.
  2. Search by Case Number. Choose county and then input the docket number.

A successful search will yield a complete docket report, which uses specialized abbreviations. To find explanations of the docket codes see the JIS-Link Code Manual, http://www.courts.wa.gov/jislink/index.cfm?fa=jislink.codeview&dir=clj_manual&file=docket.
