    Court Clerk Information
    The clerk of the court is an officer of the district court. The clerk issues court processes which establish the power of the court to act in a case and keeps a record of the date and time subpoenas, summons, and warrants are returned to court endorsed with evidence of service on potential litigants and witnesses. By statute, the clerk of the court is the official custodian of all court records. Because the district court is a court of record, papers received must be carefully preserved for future reference (in case of an appeal) or as a historical record of events as well as the basis for changes in property or liberty rights. The clerk also ensures access to court records that are open to the public.

    The Kansas Open Records Act allows you to inspect and obtain copies of public records maintained by Kansas courts, as long as those records are not exempt from disclosure. Some case information is available online through appellate case search or district case search (fee-based). Many records maintained by Kansas courts are open for inspection. More commonly requested records include court case files and transcripts, final judgments from civil and criminal cases, court budgets, and certified oaths of office.
