SCOMIS (Superior Court Management Information System)
SCOMIS is the system the courts use to manage and report Washington's superior court cases.
SCOMIS information is filed by county and must be searched for within SCOMIS on a county-by-county basis. When a SCOMIS case number is found in the JIS application, detail level of the case may be viewed within the appropriate SCOMIS court using the display commands.
Courts began using SCOMIS in staggered conversion approach. For information on when a court began using SCOMIS go to: http://www.courts.wa.gov/jislink/index.cfm?fa=jislink.codeview&dir=clj_manual&file=courts#P774_13142 and click the Superior Courts link. This table also shows the date a court began entering criminal defendant information in JIS.
Effective January 2, 2002, the amount of Pierce County Superior Court case information displayed in SCOMIS changed. The SCOMIS docket record is abridged for active cases. The Pierce County Clerk maintains the automated official court record, including a complete docket in the Pirece County Legal Information Network Exchange (LINX). SCOMIS will continue to display complete Pierce County case status information as well as Name/Case, and Judgment indices. The JIS will continue to maintain and display, as appropriate, Pierce County statewide case, person, and order history information. LINX is available on the internet at: http://www.co.pierce.wa.us/cfapps/linx/.
