This is just a "test!" (Part 1)

Can someone, anyone, maybe any real-life lawyers or judges out there help me out here? I'm super confused as I didn't go to law school and am just trying to "figure some things out" I guess you could say. OK, so if I go to the Public Docket at the 15th Judicial Circuit, Palm Beach County, FL and look up my cases, I see some things that I'm just racking my brain over and trying to figure out. I'll paste the relevant information for you below and try to make this as easy as possible for you and (and me, obviously) so you can follow along with me. It's all public information, I'm just pulling it straight from the public docket and you can download it yourself to verify its authenticity and I'd highly encourage you to do so as well (you want to make sure to keep me "honest" as well, too). 


Alright, so if I go to this link https://www.mypalmbeachclerk.com/, which I can see then takes me to the website for the "Clerk and Comptroller" of Palm Beach County, FL and I can also see that the Clerk and Comptroller for Palm Beach County, FL is Sharon R. Bock, Esq. Hmm, now I see some letters after Ms. Bock's name and they spell "Esq." I guess that mean's that Sharon R. Bock has her law license and/or is a lawyer! Well, at least that is very, very comforting to know and I can also see another, very, very comforting message when I go to the website, which explicitly states and expressly certifies, "To protect, preserve, and maintain the public records and public funds with integrity and accountability." Hallelujah!! I honestly and truly thank you for your service, Ms. Bock, as that's a very important job and I'm all about "protecting, preserving, and maintaining public records and public funds with integrity and accountability!" I salute you. 


OK, so when I get to the Clerk and Comptroller website, there is an option up top that says "Records." So, I'm going to go ahead and click on that and then from there I'm going to go ahead and click on "Court Records" and then I'm going to click on "Search Court Records." It's the part that says "Search our free online database of civil, criminal and traffic court records in Palm Beach County." OK, so if we do that, then we should end up here: https://applications.mypalmbeachclerk.com/eCaseView/


To make sure we're on the "same page" (no pun intended), it should look like this (at the bottom of this post) and you should just be able to click on it below where it says "Search Court Records" as well (I'll try and test it out after I publish the post to see if the hyperlinks are working properly, but give it a whirl and click on "Search Court Records." There's the "Public access" option, which requires no sort of "registration" and then it also says that you can "Register for free as an attorney or to access additional search options." 


So, I guess, that's my first question for you right there and maybe I'll end this blog post and continue on with another, as really, this isn't my "big, burning, question" or anything like that (and I'm getting a little "long winded" here) but how do you interpret that line, "Register for free as an attorney or to access additional search options." Do you think that means and/or implies that you need to be an attorney to "register" and then, to thus be able to access "additional search options" or no? I'm just curious. The reason I ask is that when we click on "Search Court Records" it's going to take us to a page, which says on top, "FREE PUBLIC VIEWING OF CASE INFORMATION & DOCUMENTS" and it's going to give us 2 options. The first will be to "Continue as a Guest" and the other will be to "Log in as a Registered User." 


So, my first question for you is, do you think that you need to be an attorney in order to become a "registered user" and be able to log in and have the additional search functionality or, as the website states below, "to access additional search options" or do you think that any old "Joe" can register (for free) and be able to log in as a registered user in order to access the additional search options? I'm just curious, that's all. No biggie. Seriously. But feel free to comment on the post if you wish and let me know your thoughts about the matter if you'd like. 


I haven't gotten many comments in a long time, ever since "Saloor Alim" disappeared. He used to comment on my posts all the time, but then again, it's also been, what, almost a year and a half or nearly 2 years or so (I've lost track of time, space, the space-time continuum, et al.), so maybe I'll eventually start to attract some new commenters or maybe even Saloor Alim will wish to chime in (again). I doubt it, but at this point, "all bets are off." I'll pick up with another post with what I'm "really" trying to figure out or at least "one of" the many, many, many things I'm trying to figure out I guess I should say.
