A Change to WI Case Searching

From the WI Court System's website:

Here is the notice on the Opinion Search page:
"As of April 4, 2005, the Clerk of Supreme Court's office has changed to a new case management system. As part of this change, the docket number format for Supreme Court and Court Appeals cases has changed. The new docket format contains the year, followed by the letters AP (appeals) and the case number.

For example, docket number 99-1234 will now be displayed as 1999AP001234. When [searching], if Javascript is enabled on your machine, the system will fill in the first two digits of the year and any leading zeros in the case number. For example, if searching for the old docket number, 99-2446, you can retrieve the opinion by typing 99AP2446."

Here is the notice on the Supreme Court/Court of Appeals Case Status page:
"On April 4, 2005, the Supreme Court and Court of Appeals will be converting to a new database. As a result, information on this website will not be updated. The new WSCCA website will be available on or before May 1, 2005."
