Scope and Content

Records and documents pertaining to a particular civil, criminal or probate action are filed together by the court clerk and collectively these documents constitute the case file. As these records or actions are filed, the clerk enters them in the registers which comprise this series.

A register of actions may contain the following entries for each case: name of the attorney for plaintiff and defendant, name of the judge presiding over the case, petitions, complaints, summons, answers to summons, orders from the court, assignment of judges, exhibits, judgment, findings and conclusions, costs, decrees, requests by attorneys for instructions to the jury, verdict, motions for cross complaints or new trials, amendments to previous answers, disclaimers, bonds, and inventories.

Arrangement

Numerical by case number, thereunder chronological by date.

Research Note

Between 1896 and 1923 the court kept civil and criminal case entries in the same register books. For access to criminal case entries prior to 1923 consult the first three volumes in series 27462.

Research Note

Between 1896 and 1942 the court clerk filed criminal and civil cases together. Beginning in 1943 these two distinct case file types were split and kept in separate series. At that time the court began renumbering criminal case files. The new numbering scheme is reflected in the second volume in this series.
