All cases filed in King County beginning January 1, 2000, are available as image files for viewing electronically. As part of an ongoing project, the majority of case files from 1990 to 1999 have been converted to scanned images. Case files preserved on microfilm are available in paper form.

Case files are, with some exceptions,  public records and available for viewing by the general public. The only records that are not subject to public inspection are those sealed by court order, protected by Court Rules, the Revised Code of Washington or Washington Administrative Code.
