Ohio Private Investigators Against Curbing Public Court Records

Posted by Bill on December 20, 2007

The Columbus Dispatch reports today that private investigators, among others, submitted comments to the Ohio Supreme Court opposing the Court’s proposal to limit access to public court records, see Dispatch Story

The comments on the proposed rules — which came from court officials, lawyers, police officers, media interests and private investigators — will go to the Supreme Court’s Commission on Rules of Superintendence. That panel, which is headed by Justice Judith Lanzinger, can revise the rules before sending them to the full court for approval.

As discussed before in a post, Here, the Virginia Supreme Court drafted similar rules to limit access to Virginia Court records.  As far as we know, public comments were not asked for by the Virginia Supreme Court.  Public records should remain public.
