Superior Court Case Records and Indexes
Superior Court Clerk's Office
The King County Department of Judicial Administration (DJA), more commonly known as the Superior Court Clerk's Office, serves as the record keeper and a customer service provider for the King County Superior Court.
The Clerk’s Office is responsible for maintaining and managing access to the official superior court case records, dating back to 1854. Case records are, with some exceptions, public records and available for general viewing. The only records that are not subject to public inspection are those sealed by court order, protected by court rule or by law.
The Clerk’s Office also manages receipt, disbursement and accounting of all fees, fines and payments made in superior court cases. Included are the court ordered payments on criminal and juvenile offender cases collected by the Clerk’s Legal Financial Obligations Collection program.
