Public Index CD-ROM: Ordering Information
The Public Index CD-ROM is made available in its entirety on a monthly basis.
Daily updates are made only to the indices offered on public workstations located throughout the Courthouse. These workstation indices are updated daily with data as of 5:00pm the previous business day. They include only Non-Confidential cases.
The Public Index CD-ROM includes cases from 1975 for General Civil/Family/Probate and Criminal Felony cases, from 1997 for Limited Civil cases, and 1998 for Criminal Misdemeanor cases. There is a very limited number of cases filed as far back as the 1920s included in the Public Index . If you need to find a case with a file date prior to 1975, 1997 or 1998 as previously mentioned, please request a search of paper indices.
NOTE: "Due to the unification of Superior and Municipal Court records, there may be more than one case number for an individual or company, we advise that you look at all cases for that individual."
The Public Index CD-Rom shall not be re-copied or re-distributed without expressed consent from the Superior Court of California, County of Santa Barbara. The Court specifically disclaims any and all liability if the public index is purchased from a third party vendor.
