Digital Improvements

The Tulare County Superior Court is in the process of digitizing historic documents that are currently stored on Microfilm and Microfiche to make them more easily available to the public.  These documents will not be available for an extended period of time because of this effort.  The Court thanks you for your patience as we make these improvements.
