Barnstable County Courts are judicial bodies that resolves legal disputes at the federal, Massachusetts State, or local Barnstable County level. Courts typically specialize in a particular area of law, such as criminal, civil, family, and traffic courts. Courts also create records about their cases, which provide information about the defendant and plaintiffs in a trial, the charges brought against an individual, the outcome of a trial, and any sentences, court decrees, or probation orders. Any type of judicial action creates a paper trail, and many courts provide online access to their case records. This includes records on criminal misdemeanors and felonies, divorces, lawsuits against businesses, civil rights violations, complaints about sexual harassment or discrimination, and more. Court databases often allow the public to search cases by the names of the people involved.
