HIDALGO COUNTY OPPOSES STATE CHANGES TO CURRENT STATUTES RELATED TO COURT RECORDS

The Hidalgo County Commissioners Court recognizes that the Texas Office of Court Administration (OCA), under The Supreme Court of Texas's direction, has created re:SearchTX, a web portal to allow judges secure access to a consolidated database of case information that has been e-Filed.  

The sole purpose of the e-File system developed by the OCA was to provide a delivery system for attorneys to file documents electronically to the courts and that the information would only be retained for thirty days.
 
The OCA is now retaining information filed within the e-File system and plans to make it available to attorneys and the public (for a fee) through re:SearchTX in the near future.  

District Clerk Laura Hinojosa, in conjunction with County Clerk Arturo Guajardo, Jr. placed the resolution on the agenda in their duties as designated custodians of court records, responsible for the management, preservation and access of those records. 

"It is in the best interest of Hidalgo County and our taxpayers to oppose any change to current statutes regarding care, custody and control of records held by the county and district clerks," reads the resolution. 

"We are opposed to the amendment and/or repeal of any current statutes or rules that authorize local control by commissioners court in the administration of our duties concerning records held by the county and district clerk or how the county chooses to offer those records to the public."
