Mobile app available for accessing NM court case information

SANTA FE (KSMX)- A new mobile app was presented to the public in the hopes to provide convenient access to New Mexico court case information from portable electronic devices such as a cell phone or tablet.

The Case Lookup app will display summary information for civil and criminal cases, including scheduled hearings; the names of the parties, attorneys and presiding judge; a register of the actions that have taken place in the case; and the charges and their disposition in criminal cases.

“New Mexico Courts are committed to using innovative technology, like this software program, to improve public access to information about the judicial system,” said Supreme Court Chief Justice Michael E. Vigil.

Users of the app can search for cases filed in state courts – district, magistrate and metropolitan courts as well as the Supreme Court and Court of Appeals – by the name of a party or the case number. A separate function permits searches of state and municipal court DWI cases by the name of the defendant.
