Okla. Supreme Court issues rule allowing greater public access to online court records

"The Oklahoma Supreme Court scrapped a plan Monday that would have allowed birth dates and home addresses to be excluded from public court documents.

The new rule applies to district courts across the state and was developed as part of the high court's plan to develop a statewide court system database that will allow the public to have online access to virtually every document filed in all 77 of the state's courthouses.

It provides that those who file court documents may only limit information on Social Security, taxpayer ID, financial account and driver's license numbers.

The previous proposed rule released by the court directed court filers to omit names of minor children, dates of births and home addresses, prompting opposition from a diverse group that included prosecutors, law enforcement, attorneys and the media."
