Alpha Roster

Ramsey County Weekly Public Court Calendar»

  • The Alpha Roster (Weekly Public Court Calendar) is a list of non-confidential cases scheduled for court within the next five weekdays, including today.  In other words, Monday’s report includes Monday through Friday, Tuesday’s report includes Tuesday through the following Monday, and so forth.
  • Cases are listed alphabetically by participant name.
  • Court calendars reflect scheduled courtroom hearings, but they do not include all matters handled by the court each day.  Confidential cases and cases that are not remotely accessible under Minn. R. Pub. Access 8, subd. 2 are not posted in this calendar. If your case does not appear on the calendar, do not assume that your court appearance has been cancelled or rescheduled.  Information in the calendar is subject to the MN Rules of Public Access
  • The calendar is in searchable .PDF format.  When you open the file, use your browser’s search feature to locate the case using either the name of the case participant or the case number.
  • If your case is scheduled more than seven days out, use the Judicial Branch MNCIS Public Access feature to find the court date.  If you fail to locate the record, you may need to search by case number rather than by name.
