New law expands access to court records

A new state law that takes effect in January will give people, for the first time, the legal right to get administrative records from California courthouses, according to a report in the Ventura County Star. The public access will extend to administrative budgets, workplace rules and the staffing of courthouse personnel. Some say the new rules mean more public scrutiny of the state’s courthouses.
