FAQ

Who can have access to the portal?

·         Defense attorneys who have an open, active case with the Fayette Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office. 

·     You should use the email address that is on file with the Kentucky Bar Association to register.

Can I share my access (username/password) with my legal assistant, secretary, interns, or others?

·         No.  The discovery portal is for use by defense attorneys only to ensure the security of the portal and information contained within it.  Do not share your username or password with anyone. If you share your username or password, you could lose your right to access cases through the portal.  

What cases appear in the portal? 

·         Only active, open cases appear in the portal and can only be seen by the attorney who is defending the case. 

·         Once the case is closed, the information will no longer appear in the portal.  Therefore, we suggest you download the information to your computer or a disk for reference at a later date. 

What if I have a case that is closed or the defendant is a fugitive, and I need to access the discovery in the case?

·         Call the Fayette Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office at (859)246-2060 and ask to speak to the prosecutor assigned to the case. 

What if I have an open, active case with the Fayette Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office, but I do not see the case in the portal?
