The public now has access to information about millions of more cases filed in Pennsylvania courts.

The Administrative Office of Pennsylvania Courts announced today that its online case database has been updated to include information on 4.1 million landlord-tenant cases and civil cases of less than $12,000 filed in the state’s magisterial district courts.

The case information is available for free.

The records can be searched by court, case category and status, docket number and type, county and participant name, date of birth (if available) and date filed.

 That's in addition to 27 million traffic, non-traffic and criminal cases that have been filed in Pennsylvania’s appellate, Common Pleas (criminal) and magisterial district courts and are already available online.
