Rhode Island Court Records

The Superior Court is the trial court of general jurisdiction in the Rhode Island unified state court system, having original jurisdiction in all felony proceedings, in civil matters where the amount in controversy exceeds $10,000, and in matters of equity. Jurisdiction is concurrent with the District Court as to civil matters with amounts at issue from $5,000-$10,000. The Superior Court also hears appeals on civil and criminal cases from the District Court. Rhode Island's five counties are divided into four Superior Court jurisdictions: Kent, Washington, and Newport; with Providence/Bristol counties comprising one jurisdiction. Rhode Island does not have a single trial court, however the Superior Court is the forum for a trial by jury and a stenographic record of proceedings. Appeals from trials held in the District Court result in a trial de novo, or entirely new trial, in Superior Court.

From here you are able to inquire on Rhode Island state case records including docket entries, parties, judgments, and charges in public courts. In common law jurisdictions, a court of record is a court that keeps permanent records of its proceedings. Judgments of a trial court of record are normally subject to appellate review. In many jurisdictions, all courts are courts of record. In many jurisdictions, courts that have the power to fine or imprison must be courts of record. In almost all jurisdictions, a court of record will have a court clerk whose primary duty is to maintain the permanent records. Traditionally, a court of record was required to have its own unique seal, which was used to authenticate its judgments and copies of its records.

I never knew that so much criminal data is available online. Your site is amazing, I have a new hobby!
Mark B, Newport, RI

I am a retired police officer and letme tell you that the information that you have you could only access if you were in law enforcement. This is truly revolutionary that people can check criminal records online.
Frank S, Toledo, OH

To be honest I am always skeptical of these investigative sites on the net and I was duped a few times. Your site has real records and not a bunch of links to other sites.

Lucia P
