Two Wisconsin legislators have filed a bill that would remove from a state Web site court records of someone found innocent or who has charges dismissed. Rep. Robin Vos said the bill would protect innocent people from housing discrimination but the proposal drew quick objections from open government advocates. “I don’t think the courts should attempt to hide things,” said retired Circuit Judge Gary L. Carlson, who helped create the state’s system of online court records. (1/31/08)
