Welcome to MACS - the case management system
of the Minnesota Appellate Courts
This is the public access site for the Minnesota appellate courts case management system, known as P-MACS. It provides access to the status of appeals filed with the Minnesota Supreme Court and the Minnesota Court of Appeals.
For cases that were open in either the Court of Appeals or the Supreme Court on March 3, 2003 and later, P-MACS provides the following information about the case: case title, appellate case number, parties, attorneys, docket entries, and links to orders or opinions issued in the case after March 3, 2003. For cases that were archived before March 3, 2003, only case title, case number and abbreviated party information are available.
While court staff updates case information daily and make every attempt to enter case information in a timely manner, there are occasional delays between receiving documents and entry of case information into the MACS database.
In preparation for e-filing, which will begin in late 2014, the appellate courts are scanning all incoming paper filings. Incoming documents (from parties, court reporters, etc.) are not remotely accessible and cannot be viewed in P-MACS. These documents are currently displayed as “sealed” in P-MACS, but “sealed” refers to remote accessibility in most instances. Files and documents that are not fully viewable in P-MACS may be available for in-person viewing (if allowed by law) at the clerk's office in St. Paul (8-4:30, Monday-Friday). Outgoing orders and opinions are still viewable in P-MACS, unless public access is limited by rule, statute, or court order. For more information on a specific file, you can reach the clerk's office at (651) 296-2581.
While every attempt has been made to ensure that the information provided through P-MACS is accurate, there are no warranties ensuring accuracy. To verify information obtained from this site, or to obtain appeal information not available on this site, please contact the Office of the Clerk of Appellate Courts (651) 296-2581.
P-MACS can be viewed using either the Internet Explorer or Firefox web browser. It may also work with other browsers.
NOTE: For most efficient viewing of the P-MACS, your screen resolution setting should be at least 1024x768.
