Organization of Information

OJIN OnLineOJIN information is organized in the following hierarchy:

  • By court location
  • By court type (C-Circuit or D-District). Although circuit and district courts merged effective 1/15/1998 into a single-tier trial court called circuit court, some pending cases are tied to the old district courts.
  • By case class, case type, and case number.

The following is a list of three-character court location codes:
