From the Orange County Clerk of Courts
The Orange County Clerk of Courts joins in celebrating Sunshine Week, an annual event designed to educate the public about the importance of open government and access to public records. This year, Sunshine Week is being held from Sunday, March 10th through Saturday, March 16th.
Sunshine Week is a nationwide initiative that strives to shine a light on the importance of open government and works to educate citizens on the duties and responsibilities of government agencies. The annual event reinforces the right of citizens to inspect or request copies of court records or public information in the possession of the Clerk’s Office.
“Sunshine Week is an event we look forward to at the Clerk’s Office,” said Clerk Tiffany Moore Russell. “It is an opportunity for us to demonstrate our ability to manage court records efficiently and provide access to public information. It is also a chance for us educate the public on the resources we offer that allows them to exercise their ‘right to know’ easily and conveniently.”
Continuing our efforts to increase access to public information, the Orange County Clerk’s Office launched my eClerk in July, 2015, a website which allows visitors to search court records and view public court documents remotely. We continue working today to ensure these public records are accessible as quickly and efficiently as possible.
Through our my eClerk website, the Clerk’s Office maintains more than 47 million digital court documents as well as millions of paper records for the 9th Judicial Circuit Court.
