Public Access to Judicial Records


Effective January 1, 2010, Rule 10.500 of the California Rules of Court sets forth comprehensive public access provisions applicable to judicial administrative records maintained by state trial and appellate courts, the Judicial Council, and the Administrative Office of the Courts (AOC). “Judicial administrative records” show how a court manages public funds allocated to pay for its operational costs. Such records include, but are not limited to, baseline budget information, quarterly financial statements, revenue and reserve reports, copies of contracts with vendors and final audit reports.

This rule does not apply to, modify or otherwise affect existing laws regarding public access to adjudicative (case-related) records. It also does not affect the rights of litigants, including parties to administrative proceedings, under the laws of discovery of this state, nor does it limit or impair any rights of discovery in a criminal case.

Requests may result in a fee for gathering information and reproducing documents.

In compliance with California Rules of Court, we request that you submit your requests to:

G. Sean Metroka
Court Executive Officer
201 Church St
Nevada City, CA  95959

Hours of operation (8:00-4:00).
