Since 1984, the Office of the Prothonotary has been fully computerized, and civil docket information is available by remote computer access. Through the use of several tailor-made computer programs, all civil filings, including security agreements, are entered and docket entries are created through the use of codes. Docket information can be accessed on the terminal screen or printed on pre-designed forms such as case dockets. Cases can be looked-up by Case I.D. or by the names of either the plaintiff or defendant. Entries in the Judgement index are recorded simultaneously with the entry of the information in the docketing system. Every civil case and judgement filed since January 1, 1984, and every active case filed before that date, has been entered into the computer.

For a yearly fee of $300.00, consumers and attorneys can access the dockets and redacted images for civil cases by contacting Karen Sweeney in Court Administration at
