Selecting the Cases to Display

The display settings allow you to narrow your search to only cases matching the data you entered or selected in the display settings.  You may use any combination of the display settings for your search, but at least one must be used.

Last Name/Business:  Use this setting if you wish to view cases for a particular person or business.  You may enter all or part of the name.  If you check the box to search text contained anywhere in the name, all cases with the letters entered found in the name will be displayed.

First:   If you are sure of the last name, you may enter the first name to narrow the search results.

Case #:   It is recommended that you do not use the case number as a search setting unless the case number is from a court document.  The first two digits of the case number are the year (ex. 03).  Do not enter the year when using the case number as a search field.

You can list all cases for a certain case type by entering the case type in the case number field. Click here for a list of Michigan case types.

Attorney:   You may search for cases for a specific attorney if you know the attorney's state bar number.  On court documents the state bar number will begin with the letter 'P' and will usually be placed after or under the attorney's name.   To find an attorney's state bar number go to www.michbar.org.  Under 'Member Resources' select 'Member Directory'.  Enter the attorney's name.  Once the attorney name is found, left click and the state bar number will be displayed.

Judge/Jurist:  You may search for cases assigned to a specific judge by selecting the judge from the drop-down list.  Only Isabella County judges are listed.  For cases assigned to an out-of-county judge, use 'Visiting Judge' as your setting.

Court:  You may search for cases for either Circuit or District court by using the drop-down list.  Leave the setting at 'All' to view cases from both courts.

Begin Date/End Date:  These settings are used to locate cases scheduled for a specific date or between two dates.  Use the 'begin date' to select cases for a single day.  Use both the begin and end date to select cases spanning a period of time.  To assist in date selections, a pop-up calendar is available by clicking on the either of the date fields.

   

Sorting the Displayed Cases

Selected cases may be sorted by clicking on one of the column headings that is preceded by an '*'.   'Date/Time' is the default sort order. 

 

What the Calendar Columns Mean

'P' Column:  This column tells you about the party in the displayed case.  In a criminal case, the code tells you which jurisdiction is prosecuting the defendant.  In a civil case, the code tells you whether the listed party is a plaintiff or defendant.  Jurisdiction codes are as follows:

D = Defendant
C = City of Mt. Pleasant
I = Interested Party
P = Plaintiff (civil cases only)
S = State of Michigan
U = Union Township
V = Village of Shepherd

If the 'P' column is blank, the case is a criminal case prosecuted by an unnamed jurisdiction or by the State of Michigan.

Status:  This column shows you if an action has occurred on the scheduled event.  A description of the action taken will be displayed.  If the column is blank, no action has been taken.

'W' Column:  This column discloses whether the named person has an outstanding Isabella County arrest warrant, and if so, which Isabella County court issued the warrant.  A 'C' indicates Circuit Court issued the warrant, a 'D' indicates District Court issued the warrant, and a blank indicates no warrants are outstanding.
