Question

Q: How do I find court transcripts of Georgia cases?

Answer

If you mean transcripts of trials in Georgia courts, these transcripts have to be ordered and paid for by parties involved. These transcripts contain everything that is said in a trial. The information is taken down by a court reporter who later prepares a printed version. These transcripts are not available online.They may become a part of the record on appeal if a verdict is appealed to an appellate court. However, even at an appellate level these transcripts are not online. The Court's Clerk's Office can provide information regarding a matter that has been before that particular court.

If you are asking about reported rulings handed down by reported decisions of appellate courts, these reported cases in appellate courts, can be found both in print and online.

The library has a subscription to the LexisNexis Academic which contains full-text decisions for appellate courts.  To search from the Library Homepage:

1. Under the SuperSearch Tab, select Find a Database.

2. Find and click LexisNexis Academic in alphabetical order.
