Change is coming to the way the public and attorneys search dockets and documents on the Florida Supreme Court and First District Court of Appeal websites.

Starting March 6 online dockets for the Florida Supreme Court and the First DCA will be available on the Appellate Case Information System (ACIS) linked from each court’s website.

The new search procedures are connected to adoption of a custom case management system for Florida’s appellate courts. The long-term project, sought by the Supreme Court, was funded by the Legislature in 2021 and 2022. The updated appellate case management system offers improved security, flexibility, and facilitates timely resolution of cases, according to the Office of the State Courts Administrator.
