New Database- Pennsylvania Memorandum Opinions

  •  

Looking for an unpublished opinion from the Pennsylvania Superior or Commonwealth Court? Older memorandum opinions are sometimes difficult to track down. Generally, opinions prior to 2013/2014 can be especially challenging for the researcher. One great resource to try is our new database, Pennsylvania Memorandum Opinions. The database covers from 1997-2016 and contains more than 16,000 archived memorandum opinions. Jenkins has indexed this material to allow users to search across multiple fields, including Court, Opinion Year, Opinion Date, and Case Name. The database is also full text searchable.
