Taking on a new employee might seem like a simple endeavor, but are they telling the truth on their applications? Civil court records identify potential civil actions taken by an individual or a company. These may include lawsuits, property and tax liens, judgments, tort, contract and litigation. Reveal any hidden or omitted information that may be pertinent when you’re looking to fill certain positions.
County civil records are housed in different courts based on the dollar amount of the actions. Upper courts are always searched, and lower courts can be searched on request. Lower courts typically include only small claims matters.
Federal Court Civil
This process includes a search of Federal district courts for civil cases involving alleged violations of federal statutes or constitutional rights. Cases may be brought by individuals, companies or governmental entities seeking monetary damages, an injunction, and/or another remedy provided by law.
