In accordance with California Rule of Court, rule 2.503, a court may provide bulk distribution of only its electronic calendar, register of actions, and index. "Bulk distribution" means distribution of all, or a significant subset, of the court's electronic records. The Fresno County Superior Court is technologically able to provide the latter information, namely the case index, in this manner. Indexes are available in PDF as well as text data file format delivered via electronic mail.
Case indexes are obtained from two separate reports in our case management system depending on the case type requested; specifically, the Criminal Case Index Report for new Criminal and Traffic cases and the Civil Case Index Report for new Civil and Small Claims cases.
In accordance with California Rule of Court, rule 2.507, the data fields provided for cases are as follows:
Criminal and Traffic cases contain Case Number, Case Style/Party Name, Offenses, Case Type, Filing Date, Status Date, Current Status.
Civil and Small Claims cases contain Case Number, Case Style/Party Name(s), Case Type, Filing Date, Status Date, Current Status.
NOTE: Social security number, financial, warrant, victim, and witness information, ethnicity, age, gender, government identification number, driver's license number, and date of birth must be excluded from indexes.
Case indexes are obtained from two different case management reports depending on the case type requested(Criminal or Civil). Case indexes are run by month and
multiple months may be requested at one time. The cost is $50.00 per report and each report shall not exceed one
month of data. A report can only include data from one case management report. In the event that a hard copy of
the report is requested, there is an additional charge of 50 cents per page plus actual cost of mailing.
