Cheatham County Court Records

Cheatham County court records provide an official documentation of actions and judicial proceedings created, collected, received, or maintained by the courts for a particular case. Such records typically include the parties' names, case number, court of filing, filing date, case status, attorney details, and judge information. Other components of court records include pleadings, summons, depositions, appeals, evidence, motions, subpoenas, transcripts, orders, court dockets, and judgments.

Tennessee Court records play a crucial role in state legal matters. First, they give a detailed and accurate account of all legal proceedings conducted in the state. Documenting the court process ensures all parties to the lawsuit get a fair and impartial hearing. Lastly, court records from the state or county courts may serve as evidence for future litigations.

Are Court Records Public in Cheatham County

Per the Act, all Cheatham County public records are open to the public to view, inspect, and copy public records, including records maintained by the courts.

However, the Act expressly exempts some court records from inspection. Consequently, the following court records are not public records and are not open for inspection by members of the public.

  • Records sealed by a federal statute or rule of court
  • Unpublished drafts of judicial opinions and orders
  • Electronic or written conference records or reports prepared by a judge or judicial staff
  • All written or electronic records where disclosure would interfere or frustrate the judicial function of the courts
  • All court records where disclosure would result in an invasion of personal privacy

In addition, the Act requires that sensitive personal information, including social security numbers, medical records, bank account numbers, insurance information, or tax returns included within a court record, may be redacted.
