Pasco County Court Records

Record keeping is a crucial aspect of judicial administration in Pasco County, Florida. Clerks of courts are tasked with maintaining documents and materials collected or collated from legal proceedings to preserve case history. These documents, which include recordings, transcripts, judgments, dockets, evidence, and other files submitted during court cases, form an integral part of Florida court records.

Each court record is critical to upholding a fair justice system, ensuring public accountability, and maintaining transparency in the legal process. The records aid lawyers in legal research, help judges make informed decisions, and keep members of the public updated about legal cases.

Are Court Records Public in Pasco County?

However, specific court records are exempt from public access under FS 119.0714 and FS 119.071.

Further, Article V, Section 2 of the Florida Constitution grants the State Supreme Court rulemaking powers that allow it to regulate access to court records. Fla. R. Gen. Prac. & Jud. Admin 2.420(c) lists specific court records that are considered confidential. They include:

  • Unexecuted search and arrest warrants

  • Sensitive personal information, such as Social Security numbers, bank account numbers, and debit, charge, or credit card numbers;
  • Information that may reveal the identity of respondents and petitioners in domestic, sexual, dating, and repeat violence cases;
  • Records marked confidential by court rule, federal law, or state statute.
