This room allows you to look back over closed cases. Lists of cases matching various criteria can be obtained. You may view a summary of a specific case, or research a case in detail.

When searching, "involving" will find cases where the person specified has been involved in any role, whether as magistrate, respondent, plaintiff or just by entering a comment to the case.

The dates must be entered as numerals,without any leading "0".

Magistrates may also look up housing in their area, including the renter and amount paid.
