This series comprises a register which includes details of civil cases heard in the District Court, Stanthorpe. Cases relate to financial transactions including non-payment of monies for goods sold and delivered, work performed and services rendered, recovery of possession of land, damages for personal injuries, loss and damage, breach of contract and damages for negligence.

The District Court deals with civil disputes between people and organisations involving large amounts of money. Unlike a criminal case, a civil action can be commenced and heard in the District Court without first being heard in a Magistrates Court. In a civil trial the evidence against the defendant is presented by the plaintiff (or applicant), that is the person or organisation that commenced the civil proceeding. They may be represented by a solicitor and/or barrister. The defendant (or respondent) is the person whom the civil proceeding is being brought against and may also be represented by a solicitor and/or barrister. A judge makes all decisions, including orders that one party pay another or perform certain actions to rectify a problem. However, occasionally a jury of four people may be held to answer any question of fact put to it by the judge.

Headings which have changed over time (some written in) include: number of plaint, date filed, names of plaintiff and defendant, cause of action, amount sued for, cause of action, solicitor for defence, date defence filed, cost of court and bailiff fees, date of judgment, and judgment
