Records

filed public written

Written accounts of acts, transactions, or instruments that are drawn up pursuant to legal authority by an appropriate officer and appointed to be retained as memorials or permanent evidence of matters to which they are related.

A public record is a document that has been filed with, or furnished by, a governmental agency and is available to the public for inspection. For example, title of record to property is an ownership interest that has been duly filed in the office of public land records.

The term record also applies to the formal, written account of a case, which contains the history of actions taken, papers filed, rulings made, and all written opinions.
