I had a Civil Harassment order filled against me back when I was 17 (the actual case happened when I was 18) Are the actual quotes from this public, like can people track down a document that details everything that was said in court or just the minutes which describe the outcome of the case? Is there any way to make this more private?
You should check the Court records and see what has actually been kept. Typically these kinds of court documents are not available online, but you can access them at the courthouse where the case was held. In many cases, all that is in the record are the filings and the orders, not transcripts of the actual proceedings. Your first step is to find out what is there. You'll need to contact your particular court in your particular jurisdiction to find out how to look at the file.
