Important to Note
SOAH case records prior to March 3, 2020 can be requested through an open records request.
For some cases created prior to May 26, 2022 you may find two entries for the same case in re:SearchTX. It appears that one electronic docket includes case records filed prior to May 26, and the other includes records filed after May 26. SOAH has alerted Tyler Technologies/re:SearchTX of the duplicates and they are working to correct the issue by merging the case records into one electronic dataset for each docket. Below is an example of a duplicate entry:
