New federal courts website

New Launched

The federal Judiciary’s website,, has a fresh look, improved functionality, and webpages that adjust automatically for optimal use on all sizes and types of devices. Other features include:

Court Locator

An improved Court Locator that helps users find their local court more easily. Search by city and state or ZIP code, and choose a court type on any page of the website. In addition:
·         Maps display with search results.
·         Individual district court information pages include direct links to the court’s website, e-filing, juror information page, and eJuror log-in.  
·         Mobile users can easily call or get directions to their local court with a click of a button


All court forms are now grouped in a central location, so users can search by keyword or filter by topic. Download forms directly from the main forms page, or click on the form name for more information. Relevant form instructions or committee notes are found on the specific form’s page.

Federal Rules

Records and Archives of the Judicial Conference Committee on Rules and Practice and Procedure and its advisory committees can be filtered and searched by committee and year for:
·         Meeting Minutes
·         Committee Reports
·         Agenda Books
·         Rules Suggestions
·         Rules Comments


An enhanced search for Judiciary data tables allows users to search by publication, specific type of data, and date range, and includes related analysis of the data tables.


Bookmarks and links to old locations, in most cases, will automatically redirect users to the correct page on the new site. Other websites should confirm and update any links to, to ensure proper function.
