State Court Proceedings

All fifty states and the District of Columbia allow public access to their court proceedings. As with federal courts, state court proceedings are presumed to be open to the public in most cases. However, some variation exists on a state-by-state basis. Choose your state from the list below for state-specific information on accessing state court proceedings. (Note that this guide currently covers only the 15 most populous states and the District of Columbia. We hope to add additional states to the guide at a later date.)
