Members of the public interested in cases coming before the Siskiyou County Superior Court will have to go down to the courthouse in Yreka to look them up. 

Case information was taken offline for several weeks, in response to cybersecurity threats, and a need to modernize the web access system, say county court officials. Anyone with cases coming before the court can call 530-842-0411.
