Question Concerning SB Court Database Documents


New member
To anyone who was around and actively involved in search and/or posting information from the Trial Documents:

I know originally access to the Transcripts & Court Documents was password protected and journalist had to pay for the Grand Jury & Trail Transcripts, but what about the documents which showed  warrants, memos, police inventory and the rest?  Were journalist required to pay for the documents?  Could the general public access the documents if they paid?  Did most Fans know there was a database during the investigation & trial?
