The Oklahoma Supreme Court withdrew its earlier order restricting public access to court records. The reversal came in response to strong criticism from the law enforcement community, business, court clerks, lawyers, journalists and other open government advocates. The new rules, which were intended to provide greater protection against identity theft, were to take effect June 10. They would have prevented Internet posting of court pleadings. (3/26/08)
