Ind. Courts - A new, easily searchable, appellate docket!

Remember the dread appellate online docket? Where you have to carefully type in a case number, filling one box at a time? Where if you get more than one case pulled up, there IS NO BACK KEY, you have to start over to access the doccket for each case?

There is hope! There is a new, beta Appellate Case Search. I just put it to the test and it passed. I pasted in the case number of yesterday's legislative fines decision, "49S00-1201-PL-53." No problem.

Then I pasted in the lower case number, from the Marion County court - 49D10-1106-PL-23491. Again no problem, and I pulled up three cases. I could easily look at one, then use the BACK KEY to look at the next - no need to start over!

Anyone else?

A reader: And what I like about it is that it now lists the most recent entry at the top, so I don't have to scroll all the way down to see if anything new has happened on any of my cases.

Another reader: The sort default is last updated, which is a bit odd and some of the entries for me are wrong. Within the first five or six are some cases that haven't been updated since the early 2000s.
