More On Online Access To Court Records

from the good-or-bad? dept

Last week we had an article about whether or not court records should be available online, and the general consensus around here seemed to be “hell, yes, it’s public info, and it should be easily accessible”. now has an article saying that the matter needs to be looked at carefully because of the privacy issues involved. It also poses the question as to whether or not its fair (as some courts do) to charge for access to the online records?
