    The Watauga County Clerk of Superior Court is an entity that can process a similar request, however, we do not possess a record that is responsive to this particular request.

    Hi Charles,

     

    Thank you for your reply!

     

    So far in this process, I have sent this specific records request to:

     

    1) Watauga County, NC Government (county manager) [email protected]. The response I received was, “The magistrates are not County employees. You would need to contact the State of North Carolina.”

     

    2) Then I sent to: NCJC.LSD.Public Records ([email protected]). The response I received was, “The North Carolina Administrative Office of the Courts is not the custodian of the records you are requesting. Typically, such schedules would be set by the Chief District Court Judge in the relevant county, or by his/her designee. Please contact the Watauga County clerk’s office for further information.”

     

    3) Then I sent to your office: Watauga County Clerk of Superior Court ([email protected]nccourts.org). The response I received was, “The Watauga County Clerk of Superior Court does not have a record that is responsive to this request.”

     

    Given the number of replies I’ve received previously, before I can mark this request as “Completed” I just want to clarify whether you are saying you are the correct entity to process the request. However, you do not have any records which are responsive to the request. Is that correct?

     

    Or, are you saying that you are not the record-keeper, and there is someone else I should contact? If so, please specify their name and email address.

     

    Thank you for your help!
