Q: I am not a lawyer. How/where can I research specific civil case records heard in Harris County, TX District Courts?
I am trying to find research previous cases that have been heard in Harris County District Civil Courts (civil sexual assault cases and civil cases in which school districts were sued - two separate kinds of cases). I do not know where I can find this. If I have to go down to the courthouse, I will do this. Thanks for your help.
A: Harris County has a searchable electronic docket, however, there are only certain ways to search. Go to the court’s website and/or call the clerk and they may be able to help. Good luck.
