Well, if you need some extra cash, pay attention to this next story.

The Clerk of the Superior Court of Arizona is trying to get more than $1 million back to people who posted it.

That’s right — $1 million of forgotten money. Here’s Aaron Nash, a spokesperson for the Clerk of the Court, explaining just whose money this is.

It used to be that when you wanted to appeal a Superior Court case, you had to post a bond to cover the costs of an appeal, usually $500.

But when the case finally ended, sometimes months or years later, people would just forget to get an order to get that money back. They’ve since changed that rule

So they don’t see nearly as many people forgetting to collect their money, but they still have more than $1 million just sitting there that needs to be returned to people.  

How can people get try to get this money back? The Clerk has put up a page on their website where you can search your name or by case number, and find out if you are one of the people who’s owed money.

But the Clerk’s Office can’t give you back that money without an order to release it.

If no one comes to collect all of this money, what happens to it?
