Dallas County District Clerk Gary Fitzsimmons sends word that public access to court records is now available online.
“Until now, only docket information has been available to the public on the Dallas County website,” said Fitzsimmons. “Now, pending documents in seven District Civil courts, eight Felony courts, all Family court documents from 2003 to present, and one County Court at Law can be viewed. Documents from the remaining courts will be available by the end of the year.”
“We now have now one digital County Court at Law,” said County Clerk John Warren.
Fitzsimmons has made technological innovation a priority in his administration. He began by implementing an e-filing system that delivers original petitions, motions and other court documents electronically.
He said his office ensured that sensitive information, especially documents involving children, remains secure.
“Other types of information may also be limited through the use of a redaction request form consistent with the law we have provided on our website,” Fitzsimmons said.
