Nowadays each government agency makes their own policy on what public records they make available to be searched online. Many State, County, Cities and Towns have their own websites that allow users to search land deeds, vital statistics, court records and forecloses. Its all up to the agency and the type of public record you're looking for.

You can also find public records at your local city hall, court house or government agency by contacting county clerk, court clerk etc.

Court records are basically available for anyone online, and include first and last name, criminal convictions, locations, felonies and more.

Added; to expedite your search for information it is best if you go supplied with as much information as you can possibly gather (e.g.: the case number (if known), the date of the court action, the names of the defendant or plaintiff, etc.)
