Typically by 5:00 p.m. each business day the DOCKET and COURTROOM ASSIGNMENTS for the next court date are posted.
The DOCKET is the list of cases* being heard by a judge or commissioner. Each docket is scheduled to begin at a certain time shown in the heading of the docket. Each case for that particular docket will be called in order.
COURTROOMS identifies the specific location (courtroom or hearing room) in which each judge or commissioner will be hearing cases. Please note that sometimes a judge may hear cases in one location during the morning docket and may move to a different location for the afternoon docket.
To determine the specific location and docket starting time for a particular case:
1) Locate the case in the appropriate DOCKET link. Once you've opened the DOCKET press CTRL+F to open up the 'find' dialog and enter a search parameter (for example, the party's last name). Note which judge is hearing the case and at what time the docket is being heard. The judge and docket time will show in the heading of the DOCKET.
2) Once you've identified which judge is hearing the case and the starting time of the docket, look at the appropriate COURTROOMS link to locate the courtroom or hearing room where the judge or commissioner will be hearing the case.
In the Boone County courthouse the dockets and room assignments are located on a table in the main hallway just past the security station.
In both courthouses the dockets are also posted outside each courtroom.
Dockets for Future Dates - Dockets can also be searched by judge or attorney on Case.net.
