Scope and Content

This series contains registers documenting the actions of the court in criminal cases. Documents pertaining to a particular criminal case are filed together by the court clerk and collectively these documents constitute the case file. As these records or actions are filed, the clerk notes the filing in the registers.

A register of actions may contain a variety of information for each case, including names of the attorneys for plaintiff and defendant and the name of the presiding judge. Registers also contain a record of filings of 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.
