Announcing the new Civil Judgment Search!

 

Doxpop has added an important new feature to our court searching system: Civil Judgment Search! 

As Indiana Courts have made the transition to the Odyssey case management system, one advantage is that civil judgments are entered consistently and in a format that Doxpop can reliably search.

Doxpop's new Judgment Search will identify all civil judgments for a person (or organization) along with the judgment amount and date. We do this by searching the same base data that is used to generate the Judgment Docket, which is the basis for creating a lien against real estate property, as per IC 34-55-9. This makes our Judgment Search a fantastic tool for title searchers or anyone looking to identify liens!

One important limitation of this tool is that each county has reliable judgment information beginning the day they began using the Odyssey system. Check our coverage data at this link for this information. For judgments prior to this transition, you'll still need to search through civil cases to locate any judgments that may have been noted in the minute entries. This means you'll want to take a hybrid approach to be certain that you've identified all judgments, but as time marches forward this new judgment search feature will cover more of the history you need.

You can find judgment searches anywhere you searched for court cases. Just switch over to the Judgment Search tab and perform your search!



We've also applied Doxpop's advanced searching logic to this new feature!

The results list makes it easy to quickly identify records of interest and includes a link to jump directly to the case details.



Whether you use a court case search or a judgment search to locate cases with possible you'll find detailed judgment entries now in the case details for those cases where we have that record. 



If you have any questions or comments about this, or any Doxpop feature, don't hesitate to contact Doxpop support via email, support@doxpop.com, or give us a call at 1-866-369-7671.

First, notice that this blog post has nothing to do with criminal cases, but since you asked about warrants, here's some information on that topic:


To find a warrant on Doxpop, search on the person's name and then scan the minute entries for the Court's entry granting or ordering a warrant. If that information is public, you will find it on Doxpop.

Not all warrants will be found in public case records. A warrant is generally considered public record. However, in some situations the Court may choose to make the warrant confidential (hidden) until it is served.

If you are concerned that there might be a warrant for you or a person you care about, please don't depend on searching public records to find out about it. A warrant is a serious situation and you should seek competent legal counsel to avoid making a bad situation worse.

If you expect that charges will be filed against a person and wish to know when this occurs, we suggest setting a search watch on the person's name. This video explains how to do that:
