Official Records

The Superior Court of Sacramento County has designated the electronic record as the official record for all Civil Limited and Unlimited cases (excluding Limited Unlawful Detainer) filed after November 13, 2007.

California Rules of Court differentiate between access to electronic documents via the Internet and access to electronic documents at the courthouse. As a result, some documents are not available online that are part of the complete official record.

The Court tries to ensure the accuracy of the information it provides through the Public Portal. The Court also recognizes that, on occasion, errors occur. The Court encourages verification of information accessed through the Public Portal by comparing the information available through public court kiosks and any other information available to the inquiring party. Use of this information is the user's responsibility.
