Public Records are considered “Open
Records” which are open to the public for review, without restrictions or
limitations as to who can access them. There are different categories of
records that are considered public records in California. California
Court Records are usually considered public records, unless they contain
information that involves a juvenile. The County Clerk’s office maintains
Superior Court Records, Municipal Court Records as well as Small Claims
Court Records. The County Court Clerk indexes civil cases as well as
criminal cases, which they file alphabetically, by the names of the parties
to the lawsuit. The Clerk of Court can retrieve information, by searching
the name of either the plaintiff or defendant.
