Under Administrative Rule 9(F), requests for bulk distribution of court records must be sent to the Division of State Court Administration for review and approval. The Division has developed a User Agreement that requestors must execute prior to being authorized to receive bulk data that is non-confidential and not excluded from public access under Administrative Rule 9(F)(3).

Summary Approval Process for Certain Bulk Data and Compiled Information Requests

Under circumstances related to scholarly, journalistic, political, governmental, evaluation or statistical research activities by individuals or entities, the Division may grant summary approval for a distribution of compiled information under Administrative Rule 9(F)(2)(b).

Bulk Data and Compiled Information from Courts Using the Odyssey Case Management System

Once all requirements of Administrative Rule 9(F)(3) are met, including the complete execution of the User Agreement, or summary approval granted, the Division will provide the approved data directly to the requestor. p

Bulk Data and Compiled Information from Courts Not Using the Odyssey Case Management System

Once all requirements of Administrative Rule 9(F)(3) are met, including the complete execution of the User Agreement, or summary approval granted, the Division provides authorization for the requestor to work with individual courts/clerks to obtain information within the scope of their request. The local trial court or clerk must then determine whether the information sought is consistent with the purposes of this rule, that resources are available to prepare the information, and that fulfilling the request is an appropriate use of public resources. The grant of a request may be made contingent upon the requestor paying an amount which the local trial court determines is the fair market value of the information. Individual local trial courts and clerks may be unable to provide bulk data resulting from current technical limitations or staffing limitations.

Media Request to Local Trial Court and Clerks - Administrative Rule 9(F)(2)(c)

Courts and clerks within a judicial circuit may provide non-confidential information from their case management system in response to a news media request for information that is normally available to the public via public access.

Requests for Confidential Data or Compiled Information - Administrative Rule 9(F)(4)

Under Administrative Rule 9(F)(4), requests for bulk distribution of court records may also cover records that are confidential and excluded from public access. These requests require an order from the Indiana Supreme Court before the records may be released. The prerequisites that must be met to request and receive these records are specified in Administrative Rule 9(F)(4) and allow only the Supreme Court to grant the requests.

This web page will be updated with the status of bulk data requests as the Division processes them.
