For some time, there’s been discussion about changing what reporters and the general public can see on the state’s popular circuit court access site, known as CCAP.
Most notably, many dismissed cases will be removed from WCCA. Felonies, small claims, and numerous other case types will be removed after two years and misdemeanors will be removed after one year. This represents a large number of court records that have already been removed from the system.
The WBA Newsroom site has a special section about the state’s Open Meetings and Open Records laws, which you can find here.
