A plan to publicly release court documents from all 77 Oklahoma counties online and make them free to the public is slowly moving ahead. Noble County in north-central Oklahoma is going live as a test for the ambitious information technology upgrade.
Documents dating back decades, even more than a century in some cases, that have been filed in Noble County are available for anyone with a computer to view from home. This includes marriage licenses, traffic tickets, and criminal and civil filings, among other court documents.
Oklahoma court officials hope to work out the expected kinks there before expanding the rollout to Logan and possibly Kay counties in the spring, followed by Payne, Pottawatomie, and then Tulsa and Oklahoma counties before the system goes statewide.
