Case Index

This is your starting place to identify cases filed over the years in the various courts of the Mendocino County court system.  Not all indices are available online as many are too fragile to be scanned.

Present - County-wide Index
Commensurate with the unification of the Superior, Municipal, and Justice Courts of Mendocino County, cases from all branches were consolidated into a single computerized case management system.  The Court still uses this case management system today, and indices are current up through the last day of the prior month. 
1990 to 2000 - Ukiah (Superior Court)
The second computerized system was implemented in 1990, covering civil and felony cases.  All case types are combined in a single alphabetized index.  To make searching easier, the index is separated into separate files, separated by first letter of the party name.
1984 to 1990 - Ukiah (Superior Court)
The first computerized case management system for Superior Court cases was implemented in 1984, covering civil and felony cases.  This index system was patterned after the manual ledgers, and there is a separate ledger for plaintiffs, defendants, and felony cases.  For convenience, the ledgers are also split into separate sections by the first letter of the party name, for quick access.  As the index is a computer-generated list, all names are alphabetized.
1979 to 1992 - Ukiah (Justice Court)
The first computerized case management system for the Ukiah Justice Court was implemented in 1979, covering small claims and limited civil filings.  Filings after this date are included in the current County-wide Index.
1925 to 1984 - Ukiah
Initially, civil and felony cases were listed by hand in large ledger books.  Scanned images of these books are available starting in 1925 for Plaintiff indices and 1930 for Defendant indices.  Earlier books are available for viewing in the Court Clerk's office in Ukiah.
