Court Statistics and Reports

Minnesota Judicial Branch raw data and data summaries are available to the public. Individual public court case records are also accessible, but some information may not be available online. The Minnesota Rules of Public Access to Records of the Minnesota Judicial Branch govern what information is available to the public.

Some Minnesota Judicial Branch data is available in interactive data dashboards. Dashboards have summary information and do not have information about individual cases. 

Dashboards can be downloaded in PDF format for printing and raw data from the dashboards can be downloaded in Excel and CSV. See the Dashboard User Guide (PDF) for help with these features. Dashboards are not supported in Internet Explorer.

The Minnesota State Court Administrator’s Office offers a limited menu of bulk data extracts that are available via paid subscription. These extracts contain only public information and cover very large case groups. Five extracts are available: Criminal with Traffic, Criminal without Traffic, Judgments, Evictions, and Evictions Filings. Updated data is available weekly on Monday, and subscribers are expected to update their data to comply with the terms of the agreement.
 
The following mapping document specifies the contents of each extract.

There is a one-time signup and ongoing subscription fees for each extract. The fee schedule is designed to calculate fees on the basis of file size in KB. The initial fee and subscription fees are thus subject to change over time.

Media organizations and educational institutions are exempt from the fee.
