Q&A: administrative records from Superior Court in California

Q&A (2015-16)Allan BlutsteinComment

Q. How can I obtain records concerning a California Superior Court's internal investigation of its employees?

A.  The California Public Records Act does not apply to the judicial branch.  As of 2010, however, rule 10.500 of the California Rules of Court established comprehensive public access provisions for  judicial administrative records maintained by state trial and appellate courts, and the Judicial Council of California.
