Email from AOC on CourtNet 2.0. Not just for Kentucky Lawyers. Now available to media outlets.

The AOC invites you to subscribe to CourtNet 2.0, the application that
allows you to search Kentucky court cases online 

        
The Administrative Office of the Courts invites your media outlet to subscribe to CourtNet 2.0, a program that provides near real-time, online access to Kentucky civil and criminal cases. The AOC is now ready to offer CourtNet 2.0 subscriptions to media statewide after a pilot rollout to several media outlets.
The application offers sophisticated features, including:
 
  • Flexible search engine
  • Active and inactive cases
  • Detailed case information
  • Ability to save searches for later review
  • Ability to re-execute last 10 searches
  • Visual flags for warrants, summonses and failure to appear
 
CourtNet 2.0 is the first major upgrade to CourtNet in the last decade and was developed in-house at the AOC. The AOC began a staggered statewide implementation of CourtNet 2.0 in 2013 and today CourtNet 2.0 has nearly 6,000 users. It is available to members of the Kentucky Bar Association; justices, judges, circuit court clerks and court personnel in the Judicial Branch; and all agencies in the Executive and Legislative branches. 
 
Subscription Plans
Subscriptions start at only $15 per month. There is a charge for each image (PDF) that is viewed/
downloaded and a charge for each case searched over the number allowed within a specific plan. The person who serves as the administrator of your account can add other users (subaccounts) for $10 per month per user. You can change your plan at the end of the monthly billing period if you need more or fewer searches.
