State Court Records available at the Redmond Library: State court records filed after Jan. 1, 2015, are now accessible through the public internet computers at the Redmond Public Library via the Oregon Judicial Court Information Network, which includes court case information from all Oregon circuit courts, Oregon Supreme Court, Court of Appeals and tax court. “While there are sound legal and policy reasons for not publishing case file documents directly to the internet, in a large, rural county such as Deschutes County, it makes sense for people with a need for this information to have access closer to home, rather than having to drive 30 miles or more to get to the county courthouse in Bend,” said Jeff Hall, trial court administrator for the Deschutes County Circuit Court. Documents can be printed through the library’s print system, but certified copies can only be acquired at the courthouse. Some cases, including juvenile cases and protective orders, are confidential and not available to the public.
