Clerk of District Court records date back to 1919 and until 2008 were maintained in books. All records filed after 2008 are accessible by computer search.
The majority of all Clerk of Court records are open to the public. It is the Clerk of Court’s responsibility to ensure accurate and up-to-date records. Searches, copies, and certified copies are provided upon request. Fees for searches and copies are charged according to statute.
The Clerk of District Court also serves as Jury Commissioner for Pondera County. As required by statute, each May the Secretary of State provides a combined list of registered voters, licensed drivers, and holders of Montana ID cards to the Clerk of District Court. This list is stored and maintained electronically and it is from this list that jurors are pulled for the City, Justice, and District Court Judges. It is the Clerk’s duty to maintain an accurate listing of all selected jurors and to pull individual jury panels for the District Court Judges upon request.
