Please click here to view the RI District Court Administrative Order 2021-11 regarding criminal arraignments under Article I, Section 9 – Right to Bail. Effective November 4, 2021.  

As a reminder, starting today, Thursday, November 4th RIBA transitioned from Casemaker to the Fastcase platform. We have been informed that all of the missing data that was available in Casemaker is now available in Fastcase. Since the data transfer is complete, you will no longer have access to the Casemaker platform. 

To help ease your transition, visit the Fastcase Resource Library where you can access tutorial videos, register for training webinars, and find answers to your questions. A recent addition to the Resource Library are two guides (Casemaker4 to Fastcase & Casemaker Legal to Fastcase) where users familiar with Casemaker can see how the same functions work in Fastcase.
