|Public Index CD-ROM: Technical Information|
The Public Index CD-ROM is made available in its entirety on a monthly basis. The file layouts are new as of October 1, 2005.
Weekly updates are made only to the indices offered on public workstations located throughout the Courthouse. These workstation indices are updated weekly on Monday with data as of the end of the previous week. They include only Non-Confidential cases.
The Public Index CD-ROM includes cases from l975 for General Civil/Family/Probate and Criminal Felony cases, from 1997 for Limited Civil cases, and 1998 for Criminal Misdemeanor cases. There is a very limited number of cases filed as far back as the 1920s included in the Public Index . If you need to find a case with a file date prior to 1975, 1997 or 1998 as previously mentioned, please request a search of paper indices.
NOTE: "Due to the unification of Superior and Municipal Court records, there may be more than one case number for an individual or company, we advise that you look at all cases for that individual."
The purchaser must provide the software to view and search the index files. The CD-ROM contains no software. The Superior Court will not provide technical support for this product.
