Best Answer

Most state trial court decisions are NOT published. Unless the trial is newsworthy and the media chooses to publish the results of the trial, there is no routine public publishing of these decisions. However, the results of any trial are a public record and may be researched by going to the Office of the Clerk of the Court for your research.
