What The Agency Does
Common public record requests include court-case calendars; small claims filings up to $3,500; civil filings up to $10,000; case files on petty offenses and misdemeanors; orders of protection; traffic violation records.
Only court administrative documents – for example, budgets, memoranda and policy documents – may be requested through this public-record request process. Documents and filings pertaining to specific court cases generally must be requested in person from the clerk of the court in which the case is being heard. Docketed case filings often can be searched electronically on the website of the court where the case is being heard. But in most cases, the documents themselves may only be retrieved and copied by visiting the clerk of that court’s office.
