States: Maine: Cumberland
This sounds like one of the old (and I'm Not trying to be flippant here, this is what they were called) "fornication" lawsuits or cases. People in those days could not have pre-marital relations so it was a crime if caught or the single woman became pregnant. This is what that sounds like to me. Several years ago, and I'm talking around 1997 or so, Rootsweb used to have a list online of the fornicaters from Cumberland Co., but I doubt its still there now...but it might be.
As far as obtaining a copy of this court document, I would think you could write to the Cumberland Co., ME hall of records at the courthouse or call them and they could advise you on how much it would cost and where to send the money.
Hope this helps a little bit.
