Case Research Collection
The Case Research Collection (CRC) is a database of concluded proceedings before the Disciplinary Board of the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania, making available case information and documents. Entries from January 2016 through the present are currently included in the CRC. The Disciplinary Board encourages visitors to search the CRC using a wide variety of available criteria to narrow findings.
All entries in the CRC provide a basic set of information, including keywords, rule violations, and disposition.
For discipline matters resulting in a sanction of public reprimand, public censure, suspension, or disbarment, the CRC provides Board reports as well as Board and Supreme Court orders and opinions. When appropriate, a joint petition in support of discipline on consent may be provided in place of a Board report. In reinstatement matters, the CRC provides Board reports as well as Supreme Court orders and opinions.
For discipline matters resulting in a sanction of informal admonition or private reprimand, a summary of discipline is provided, but documents and identifying information remain confidential. Other confidential documents, including some resignation statements, are not publicly available and are not included in the CRC.
A user manual and video tutorial are available as guidance.
