About the Office

The Clerk of Court is the public office and record keeper of the Wyoming Supreme Court and is responsible for case management including: docketing appeals and petitions for review, accepting filings in cases before the Court, filing and serving all orders of the Court, and issuing opinions on the day of publication. The Supreme Court’s docket, along with any electronically filed documents is available to the public at no charge on this website. Admission to the Wyoming Bar begins here with the filing of an application for admission. The Clerk and staff are committed to quality customer service to the Justices and staff of this Court, judges and attorneys at law and the general public. We cannot provide legal advice, but are always happy to answer procedural questions regarding the Rules of Appellate Procedure or Admission to the Practice of Law.

No, petitions for review pursuant to W.R.A.P. 13 or any other original proceeding are filed by conventional means only. Any responses or briefing, if granted, will need to be electronically filed.
Our e-filing system is integrated with the Wyoming State Bar’s attorney database. You must be an active Wyoming State Bar member to register and become an e-filing user. All e-filings will need to be made by local counsel. Attorneys who are admitted pro hac vice will still receive hard copies of all orders entered in a case by mail and can always access the public docket.
If it is during regular business hours, call the Clerk’s office immediately at (307) 777-6129 and ask us to reject your filing. You will then be able to correct your mistake and resubmit your pleading.
It will depend on the mistake. Minor errors such as typographical or citation can be corrected by e-filing an “Errata”. The pleading needs to be titled as such and state what corrections are being made and include a certificate of service. Use the docket entry “Notice Incoming – Errata” to e-file the errata. You will need to send a signed original and six copies of the errata also. If the mistake is substantive, you will have to file a motion to file an amended or corrected brief.
Please do not place any pleadings in the mail until you receive the system generated filing notice stating that your documents have been accepted. We may have to reject your pleading for some reason, such as unredacted material. You will have to make the corrections and resend the hard copies.
Every email address on your account will receive a Filing Approval Notice that informs you that the pleading you filed has been accepted and may be viewed on the docket page.
You may have inadvertently clicked on “Save as Draft” instead of “Submit to Court”. If you don’t get a message with a confirmation number, submission date and time, check your draft filings.
Most cases are available on the public docket and all information is viewable on the World Wide Web. The Rules Governing Redactions from Court Records are to protect the following personal data identifiers: Social Security Numbers, Names of Minor Children, Dates of Birth and Financial Account Numbers. Home Addresses should also be redacted per Rule 11 of the Electronic Filing Administrative Policies and Procedures Manual.
There are several reasons you might not be able to find your case on the public docket. It might be a confidential case, an old case docketed before January 1, 2006, or it may not be docketed yet.
The notice of appeal is filed in the District Court. Once the record is complete, the Clerk of the District Court will notify us that the case is ready to be docketed. At that time, we will enter the case in our system and you will be able to locate it on our public docket.
No, you will need to file an errata stating that the appendices were inadvertently omitted and attach them to the errata.
Yes, but only if you are counsel of record in the confidential case. If you are not counsel on the case when it is originally docketed, you will need to submit an entry of appearance by conventional means before you will be added to the case and are able to e-file.
The electronic docket provides public access to cases before the Court. The hard copies are still used in the same manner as they always have, the justices and law clerks read them for decision making and crafting an opinion, the judicial assistants use them to verify information. The original copy of each pleading is part of the permanent record of the case which eventually goes to the Wyoming State Archives.
No, counsel of record will receive electronic notification of all orders entered in their cases. This notice will constitute service of the orders. Orders are also posted on the docket page for viewing.
No, a filing notice is automatically generated by the electronic filing system and constitutes service of the filed document on users. Every email address listed by the attorney will receive the system generated notices. Parties and/or attorneys who are not users must be served with hard copies of any document filed electronically.
