County Upper Civil Court Search

Info Cubic’s County Criminal Records solution reports legal violations found by searching the upper and lower courts in 3,100+ jurisdictions across the U.S.

Info Cubic’s County Upper Civil Court Search reviews information from the upper court to identify non-criminal suits filed by individuals or corporations, including product liability suits, local civil rights violations, and judgments for nonpayment of goods. Most states divide  lower and upper courts based on the monetary amount of claims. Although the amount varies by state, generally, Lower Civil cases involve claims for less than $25,000.00, and Upper Civil cases involve claims for more than $25,000.00. Conversely, for a civil case to be heard in Federal District court, it must involve diversity of citizenship (the parties are citizens of different states or countries) and potential damages of more than $75,000, or there must be a constitutional or Federal law violation. Info Cubic offers a wide range of scoping options to suit any client’s needs and or requirements. The leading practice is to search all provided and developed names and jurisdictions for the past 7 years.
