Hamilton County online court records

Growing concerns about security and identity theft, exemplified both locally & nationally, have led the Hamilton County Clerk of Courts Office to suspended Internet access to its court records as of last Monday. (Article)

Clerk of Courts Greg Hartmann said, the website “is a tremendous public resource, but it needs to be balanced with the needs of privacy & security.”

Public records will continue to be available at the Hamilton County Courthouse, as will the policy of issuing parties to particular cases passwords allowing them to access those cases online.
