State Court Records

All fifty states and the District of Columbia allow public access to their court records. While many of these state laws are similar to the law governing Federal Court Records, some variation exists on a state-by-state basis. Choose your state from the list below for state-specific information on accessing court records. (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.)
