More on open access to court records....I used to classify these news stories under "the problem of excessive accessibility". But more and more, the stories are about decisions to provide open access, or decisions to balance open access and privacy, rather than objections to open access as excessive compared to the former policy of open paper access. The Center for Democracy and Technology has just posted the results of a 50-state survey, showing which records each state makes openly accessible.
