A person can contact the clerk of the court and ask them about any case they would like to learn more information about. They can tell the status and indicate whether any decisions have been made or any actions taken on a case. They often can look that information up with either the case number XXXXX the names of the parties.
In theory (and normally) decisions on motions should be sent to all parties, however, that is not infallible and it is possible that parties may not always obtain notice for any number of reasons. Further, under the rules of procedure it is also possible that the time for a reply to a motion or for a decision on a motion may pass without a court taking any action and a party may then be able to provide a response or otherwise ask the court to do something because an opposing party failed to timely respond. Unless a person calls the court to find out what the status is, however, they may never know something has occured.
