CourtNet 2.0 Launching for Kentucky Court Cases

Members of the Kentucky Bar Association have been receiving emails from the Chief Justice of the Kentucky Supreme Court regarding a "technological milestone for the practice of law in Kentucky."

CourtNet 2.0, a new application for accessing court cases statewide, is the first time in over a decade that the Administrative Office of the Courts (AOC) is offering a way for attorneys to access real-time information online regarding Kentucky criminal and civil cases.

Under the current CourtNet system, only active cases appear and information is limited.

The new system contains more details case information (including closed or inactive cases), citation images, and additional search functionality.

Unlike the previous version, CourtNet 2.0 will not be free of charge.  Several payments plans will be available, starting at $15 per month.  Per the release, "[t]he subscription fee will support ongoing product development so that attorneys can continue to benefit from upgrades in court technology."  (See CourtNet 2.0 Service Plans for more info.)

To request enrollment in the new system, visit https://kcoj.kycourts.net/CourtNet/User/Invitation.  After submitting a request on that page, users are receiving the following email:
Requests willl be processed in the order in which they are received. You will receive email notification when access to CourtNet2.0 is available for your use.
KBA attorneys who request an invitation prior to May 31, 2013, can use the system free for thirty (30) days.

CourtNet KBA will no longer be operational at year's end (although the public version of CourtNet will still be accessible).  For more information, contact the AOC Service Desk at 800-860-4262 or CourtNetHelp@kycourts.net.
