On the Case Information website, find the Suffolk Court in which the case will be heard. For Circuit Court, you can either type in the defendant's name or the indictment number. You may also select either Criminal or Civil Court, however, the system defaults to Criminal. The choices are located above where the name is entered. After typing in the defendant's name, a list of cases will appear. Click on the case number in the left hand column to find out more details about each case. The form should have the time, date and type (trial, sentencing, etc.) of the next hearing. General District Court information may be obtained in the same way, however, your choices will include Traffic, Criminal and Civil. In this location, you must choose one of the three choices before you type the name of the defendant.
