In May 2011, Corporate Screening reported the Santa Cruz, CA courts were experiencing delays. Currently, budget cuts have resulted in fewer clerks and further delays for basic index results and also for case data (possible records found). Unfortunately, all searches in Santa Cruz must be performed by court clerks.
As a result, turnaround time for requested information has been affected. Index searches with no possible name matches are now expected to take five or more days, and in cases where files need to be pulled, it will now take between 16-32 business days for court clerks to locate and make them available.
Corporate Screening will continue to do everything possible to minimize delays that may be incurred in Santa Cruz, and will keep clients updated on any cases that may be affected by this.
