Case Index
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.

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.
