I have not yet looked at this, but thank you for your prompt reply.
I still don't understand how an allegedly existing 2011 lawsuit originates in "Showcase" technology added years later. Or how a lawsuit in Showcase at this point in time (when the court is now moving docs from public records already online from the Public Records search function) does not also appear in the Public Records Search function.
It still seems to me like this "Showcase" program is for fake lawsuits -- consequently, there is no original public record.
And just to refresh your memory, here is the public records request I made about this allegedly existing lawsuit -- which did not result in any public records available on the Public Records search function, as I proved:
