More on Oversight Committee Investigation into CCAP, Wisconsin's Circuit Court Access Database

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel has more on the investigation into the Wisconsin Circuit Court Access (WCCA) database, commonly known as CCAP.

Highlights from the article:

But now an oversight committee of 20 will review the rules governing CCAP. The panel includes judges, clerks of circuit courts, representatives from the courts, district attorneys' offices, law enforcement agencies, the state public defender's office, state legislators and the media,

The committee is scheduled to meet five times between June and December and make recommendations to A. John Voelker, the director of state courts. He, in turn, is expected to decide by next spring if he will make any changes to CCAP.

Two committee members, state Rep. Marlin Schneider (D-Wisconsin Rapids) and Bill Lueders, president of the Wisconsin Freedom of Information Council, have diametrically opposed views on the information Web site.

"My problem is that it is too easy to dig up dirt on anybody and use it in ways that it is not intended for," said Schneider.

Lueders sees things differently. "The solution to problems created by access to information should not be less access to information, but more information," he said.
