Robert Half Court Stringer in Bellingham, Washington
The Court Runner’s function is to collect lawsuit documents from their assigned courthouse(s), copy those cases, scan those cases, and then upload those cases into the client’s online portal- all by 6pm local time the same day.
The daily job duties of a Court Runner are:
Before going to the courthouse, Runners will use their work laptop to research the cases that they will need to obtain from the courthouse.
Once they have gathered a list of cases that they need, they’ll go to the courthouse to get them. This could be once a day, or a few times per week, depending on the need.
Once at the courthouse, they will either pick up copies the court has for them, make copies on their own, or download and print copies of the cases they need.
They’ll need to review those filings to be sure they are pulling the correct case types for that location (manager will discuss which types are required).
Once they have the case documents, they will return home.
Once home, they will use their work-provided scanner to scan the documents.
Once the documents are scanned onto their work computer, they will then upload those documents into an online portal.
Finally, at 6pm local time they’ll send a report to their manager letting them know which cases were pulled and which cases were uploaded for that day.
Contract type: Long term contract – 1 year tentative (may extend based on performance and need)
