Ind. Courts - Problems with the appellate docket [Updated]

Readers the past few days have been reporting problems with the Clerk's Appellate Docket.

Attorneys use the docket to keep track of the status of their cases. A search by attorney should yield all that attorney's cases. Instead, currently keying in your name appears to produce nothing.

In fact, it just produced "We're sorry. Your search for "XXX, Open Cases" did not return any results" for every name I tried. From a reader:

Even when I called the clerk's office, they could not get it to work. And I am not the first.

The clerk's office sent me to a person who sent me to JTAC who said they do not handle this.

[Updated at 12:43] A reader writes:
It still seems to be working if you key in your attorney number rather than your name.
Another reader just wrote:
The only way I can get the search by attorney function to work is by entering my first name where it asks for my last name and my last name where it asks for my first name. Weird.
ILB: I hope that is not a symptom of a broader problem, involving other docket data.
