Will My Court File be Made Available to the Public?
Practically speaking, the availability of the public portions of your case file does not necessarily mean that any member of the public will actually see what is inside. It simply means that if anyone specifically wanted to see it, and was motivated enough to find and travel to the right courthouse, they could see it. Although this may happen, it rarely does.
For more information on the availability of court files, I suggest reading "A Guide to Public Access, Sealing & Expungement of District Court Records."
