Case.net public documents accessed by the public now display a watermark


Public documents accessed remotely on Case.net by public users now display a watermark. 

Since the system’s Oct. 19, 2023, monthly deployment, publicly viewable documents accessed remotely via Case.net by public users include a watermark which reads: "Not an Official Court Document." If printed, the watermark will display on the printed document. 

The Office of State Courts Administrator notes the watermark feature only applies to public documents accessed via Case.net’s remote access features. If a member of the public visits a courthouse and logs in to a public access terminal, no watermark is displayed. Additionally, no watermark is displayed for court staff or users who are licensed lawyers when logged in to Case.net. 

Above is an example of the watermark as it appears on public court documents. 

Contact the OSCA help desk with any questions, or requests for technical assistance with e-Filing and Case.net, at 888-541-4894 or OSCA.Help.Desk@courts.mo.gov.
