Effective immediately Clayton County Superior Court has made the decision that court clerks will no longer use their case management system to assist researchers in providing missing details from the public access terminal. The Deputy Court Clerk Supervisor has notified us directly of this change. Previously, clerk assistance has been necessary to obtain the full DOB as the PAT only provides a year of birth in some cases.
Certain records will still yield the full DOB if the scanned images in the PAT contain that information, however other records may not have the full DOB details scanned or available. SJV will continue to return case details from Superior and State Court with all readily available information, but without the clerk’s assistance, we will only be able to return what the PAT provides. We will continue to monitor this situation and work to advocate for more DOB access at the courts and provide further updates as they are made available.
