“How can I find out what’s going on in a pending case?”
The best way to find out what’s going on is to ask a lawyer on the case, but this will only work if the lawyer is authorized to discuss the case with you. If not then the next best thing that you can do is to reach out to the Clerk of Court.
In that regard each jurisdiction within the State has it’s own Clerk’s Office, each Clerk maintains it’s own records (most of which are public) and each has it’s own mechanisms by which the public can access the information.
Many Clerks maintain dockets (chronological line-items of the events in a given case), some permit online access to the physical information and all permit in-person inspection and copying of non-privileged materials. As far as testimony goes that usually has to be requested from a given Court reporting agency (whether court reporters or electronic recordings) but most all documents are going to be found inside of the Clerk’s file.
You can either call or physically go to the Clerk’s office and seek what you wish and, in either event be sure to follow the rule of the 3 “p”‘s – be patient, pleasant and polite – then you will likely be surprised at just how knowledgeable and helpful the Deputy Clerk’s can be (conversely… well…).
