Providence County Civil Case Numbering

10/01/2019 -According to a notice from the Rhode Island Superior Court, An increase in the number of civil filings in Providence Superior Court is requiring that the case numbering convention be configured to account for more than 10,000 cases.  Starting 9/30, for example, attorneys will see case numbers appear as "PC-2019-09874" with a preceding "0" on the suffix number.  Attorneys can still search for the case in both the public portal and File and Serve website without adding the preceding "0" and find the case.

If there are any questions about this numbering convention, please ask at the Clerk's counter or contact the Superior Court Help Desk at
