Several County Criminal Courts at Law and District courts have reported intermittently slow system performance for Harris County District Clerk web site users. These slowdowns are causing longer than usual wait times for external users such as public users, law firms, and commercial vendors. We ask commercial customers who run data scraping scripts to help ease the system slowdown time by instead using our Public Datasets that provide a large quantity of information for download. If there are additional elements of data not currently within the datasets that you would like to see added, you may contact using the information in the “Contact Us” link at the bottom of the page.
