Closures and Delays    Court Fees

Appriss Insights is closely monitoring court closures and access restrictions nationwide and has proactively implemented a variety of contingent processes to maintain the level of service that you’ve come to expect. Even with these contingencies in place, you may see a degradation of service in certain regions as government officials continue to close or curtail access to government offices and online systems which impact our ability to provide court research services. 

In order to apprise our customers of current closures which may affect our court research services, we are updating this page regularly with information on court closures and possible delays. Please note that while we are providing the best available information we have, due to the ever-changing nature of events related to COVID-19, accuracy is not guaranteed.  

We remain dedicated to providing your business with accurate and timely court research services and appreciate your trust in Appriss Insights during these challenging times.

Los Angeles CA PII  08.24.21  

As California moves forward with redaction of PII from online and in-court PATs, we will face some challenges in volume-heavy areas. Within the past month, Los Angeles has pulled the DOB filter from the online index and replaced it with a months and year of birth (M&YOB) filter. Appriss utilizes the in-court process as it’s always been the most accurate, timely, and price-effective process for our clients. Late last week, the in-court PAT replaced a full DOB with a M&YOB.   

  

What does this mean for searches in this county?  

  •    The month and year are still available on the PAT, but even the clerk will not verify more than month and year
  • Defendants who physically appear in court are the only ones allowed to have full DOB accessed. 
  • Attorneys are also excluded from the PII and will not be able to access the full DOB. 

  

Appriss is currently working to assess the impact on our searches both in turnaround time and clerk fees. The Superior court hasn’t yet indicated a fee schedule for the assistance linked with confirmation of Month and Year (M&YOB) on searches. We will continue to update clients as we obtain firm information.
