A NOTE FROM THE COURT: 

The staff of Superior Court of Santa Barbara County has been inundated by phone calls from various press and media agencies seeking information about high profile cases.

One of the primary purposes of this website is to provide the public with up-to-date and immediate information regarding high-profile court cases. The secondary purpose is to reduce the number of telephone inquiries to the superior court seeking information and/or documents. This website should be the public's primary & immediate source of information.

Thank you.

Gary M. Blair
