SCPLL’s Trellis subscription does not provide free access to all California Court documents. Some Counties charge for access and download of court documents, and Trellis attempts to pass the cost along to the user through a direct purchase charge. Do not attempt to order a document through the SCPLL’s Trellis account. It will not be delivered, and the library cannot reimburse you for the expense.
If you wish to get documents from a county court that has a paywall, please go directly to that county court’s website and order it from there.
