Bill Lueders

The president of the Wisconsin Freedom of Information Council has penned a piece that highlights how the calls for privacy protection are being used to chip away at access to public information.

The article from Bill Leuders is available here.

Lueders cites examples like a recent push to give privacy to Wisconsin Lottery winners, the redaction of dismissed cases from the state online court records system, and other cases where privacy is being used to defend decisions or proposals to withhold public information.
