Editorial on Bills Seeking to Limit Access to CCAP

The Beloit Daily News weighs in on the two pending Wisconsin bills which would limit access to court records via CCAP.

AB 418 would restrict public access and allow only judges, court officials, police, lawyers and "accredited" journalists to view the information.

AB 754 would require that all records pertaining to a case be deleted if it is dismissed; if a defendant is found not guilty; or if a case is overturned on appeal.
