Small Claims Information Now on Judicial Branch Website

The public now may access information about small claims cases filed in Connecticut's courts through the Judicial Branch's website, at http://www.jud2.ct.gov/Small_Claims/.

Chief Court Administrator Joseph H. Pellegrino predicted that this new feature will greatly assist members of the public, particularly since many small claims litigants represent themselves. In addition, he said, providing such information via the website will free up Judicial Branch personnel to handle other matters.

"Between layoffs and retirements, the Judicial Branch's resources have been greatly stretched,'' Judge Pellegrino said. "Providing information over the website is among the most cost-efficient means we have at our disposal to help both the public and our staff."

The case information is updated at the close of business and includes data entered as of the previous workday. It is possible that some documents filed with the clerk may not have been entered into the Small Claims Case Look-up; in that event, individuals are advised to check the Look-up at the end of the day or the next day to see if the information has been updated.

Small claims case information may be searched by docket number, party name, court calendar, attorney case list, attorney calendar and attorney search.

The available data will display information from all small claims cases, except libel and slander, where the money damages claimed do not exceed $3,500, or in the case of security deposit claims only, a double amount that does not exceed $7,000.

The success of the Judicial Branch's Civil and Family Case Look-up prompted the Branch to consider requests from attorneys, pro se litigants and clerks for a Small Claims Case/Party Look-up.
