Dear Ms. Mend,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
The location of any court records that may have been published in the San Francisco newspaper would depend on the date of the case and whether it was tried in a state court or a federal court. Please review NARA’s Judicial Records web page, the FamilySearch Research wiki for United States Court Records, and the inventory from the California State Archives Court Records Program.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
