Briefs in the Library

The library provides public access to the WI Supreme Court and Court of Appeals briefs and appendices for all cases ordered published or unpublished, starting with the first case heard in each court (1839 for the WI Supreme Court; 1978 for the WI Court of Appeals).

Visit the State Law Library or request copies through our Order a Document service. Our physical collection may only be used in the library. For more information, see our FAQs.

Briefs for cases that have been summarily disposed or otherwise terminated are not kept by the library. Contact the Clerk of the Supreme Court and Court of Appeals for briefs for these cases.
