Washington’s Civil Case Limit Ceiling Increase Affects Court Record Searches

Record searches involving a civil case amount between $75,000 and $100,000 should now be performed at both the Superior Court and District Court. The civil limit increase to $100,000 was effective as of July 24, 2015.

For reference: In the state of Washington, the Superior Court is the court of general jurisdiction and the District Court is the court of limited jurisdiction. The District Courts have concurrent jurisdiction with Superior Courts over misdemeanor and gross misdemeanor violations, and civil cases limited under a set figure.

As of this post, the state judicial web page has not been updated to reflect the new amount.
