Answer

Dear Professor Coll, 

Unfortunately, superior court cases are not available online or in law libraries. Such records are only kept in hard copies with the court. So, you will need to contact the SF Superior Court directly to inquire about the procedure for requesting and accessing these documents (I believe you will need to go there in person or hire a courier to retrieve them). The phone number for the Civil Records at the SF Superior Court is 415-551-3802. In referencing the case, in addition to providing the name and year, you will also want to reference the Case Number (96-977874).
Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions. 
Best,
Jodi
