Appriss Insights is closely monitoring court closures and access restrictions nationwide and has proactively implemented a variety of contingent processes to maintain the level of service that you’ve come to expect. Even with these contingencies in place, you may see a degradation of service in certain regions as government officials continue to close or curtail access to government offices and online systems which impact our ability to provide court research services. 

In order to apprise our customers of current closures which may affect our court research services, we are updating this page regularly with information on court closures and possible delays. Please note that while we are providing the best available information we have, due to the ever-changing nature of events related to COVID-19, accuracy is not guaranteed.  

We remain dedicated to providing your business with accurate and timely court research services and appreciate your trust in Appriss Insights during these challenging times.
