The administrative arm of the California Supreme Court adopted a rule providing public access to administrative records of all state courts. Peter Scheer of the San Rafael-based California First Amendment Coalition writes “you will be able to request records showing the exact compensation of court employees or reimbursements for judges’ professional expenses. You will be able to obtain a copy of vendor agreements entered into by the courts, or examine detailed financial statements and budget information. Still off limits, of course, are records of the courts’ internal deliberations in adjudicated cases.”
