Washington Courts Online

This is a handy tool to find current events in Washington Courts along with information on Juvenile Court to the State of Washington Supreme Court. Also, the Judicial Info Systems is available; the Judicial Information System (JIS) is the primary information system for courts in Washington. It provides case management automation to appellate, superior, limited jurisdiction and juvenile courts. Its two-fold purpose is: (1) to automate and support the daily operations of the courts and (2) to maintain a statewide network connecting the courts and partner criminal justice agencies to the JIS database. It serves as a statewide clearinghouse for criminal history information, domestic violence protection orders and outstanding warrants. The benefits of this approach are the reduction of the overall cost of automation and access to accurate statewide history information for criminal, domestic violence, and protection order history.
