Request judgment


If you have a legal interest in the content of a particular court decision (judgment, order), you can request it from the respective court.

Every German court offers the possibility of obtaining a complete copy of the decisions issued. For data protection reasons, however, the decisions are only published anonymously, i.e. all names and other information that could make an identification of the parties to the proceedings unspecified are made unrecognizable.

Process flow

The anonymised copy of a court decision can only be issued by the court that issued the judgment or order. For this purpose, an informal application must be made to the court. After receipt of the application, it is examined whether the requested court decision is in principle suitable for being handed over to a third party not involved in the proceedings. If this is the case, the court decision regarding sensitive data of the parties to the proceedings will be anonymised and sent to the applicant. The costs incurred will then be dealt with separately.

If you cannot find the desired court decision on the Internet, you can also request the decision directly from the court that issued the decision.

You should provide the following information:

  • Your full address (with telephone and fax number)
  • if known: file number of the decision
  • if known: date of the decision
  • a rough description of what the decision is about
  • a brief explanation of your legitimate interest in the court decision (e.g. precedential effect for a particular procedure of your own)

You can submit the request in writing by letter or fax, in person or electronically by e-mail. As a rule, the decision is returned in the same form in which it was requested.
