Court Records, Directory And News in ID
Idaho's state courts include Magistrate and District Courts, as well as the Idaho Court of Appeals and the Idaho Supreme Court. In Idaho, Magistrate and District Courts share jurisdiction over cases relating to torts, contracts, probate/estate, mental health, and general civil matters. Idaho's Magistrate's Court can hear real property claims valued up to $10,000, while those with higher values must be heard in Idaho District Court. Idaho's Court of Appeals hears appeals of civil and criminal cases, and the Idaho Supreme Court is the state's highest court and hears civil and criminal appeals as well as any case where the sentence could include the death penalty.

The Idaho Judiciary's website contains a link to Idaho's Court Data Repository (https://www.idcourts.us/repository/start.do) an online database of trial court case information from each of Idaho's 44 counties. Through this Idaho court records website you can obtain information including case status, party names, judge assignment, subject, and date filed. To obtain copies of Idaho court documents, contact the Idaho county court clerk for the county where the case took place, or contact the court directly, as policies regarding public record retrieval vary.
