Rules of Superintendence 44-47 on public access to court records, which were originally slated to go into effect on May 1 but were rescheduled to allow more time for judges, court staff, and members of the public & the media become familiar with them, also now become effective on July 1st..(Here) The Court has an portal at the lower right-hand corner of its website with more information and a historical perspective on public records & open government.
