Policies & Notices

Important! Please Read!


Remote Access Restrictions: For privacy reasons, the information available on MPA Remote is also limited to remotely accessible information under Rule 8, subd. 2 of the Minnesota Rules of Public Access to Records of the Judicial Branch. Under this rule, publicly accessible case records available on the MPA Courthouse service (on court public access computers) are not all remotely accessible through MPA Remote on the internet.  For example, party street address and name searches on criminal, traffic, and petty misdemeanor pending criminal case records are publicly accessible and available on the MPA Courthouse service, but not on MPA Remote. The federal Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) also prevents us from displaying harassment and domestic abuse case types on the internet, but these are available through the MPA Courthouse service. Comment fields for all case types also are not available on MPA Remote but are available through the MPA Courthouse service.  

You WILL NOT be notified when public data is unavailable for any of these reasons as you are conducting searches in MPA Remote.

Please read these online Policies, Notices & Instructions (located here within this online help system) for important details.
