The State Supreme Court is asking for public input on a rule change which would remove personal information like birth dates from criminal or civil court records.

The Supreme Court is considering the change as it gets set to unveil its statewide electronic court system.

Administrative Director Michael Evans says information like birth dates, home addresses and social security numbers shouldn’t be made readily available to the public.

“Some people are not overly excited about using the court system and allowing the world, literally the world, over the internet to identify who they are, where they are or what they’re doing about their life.”

The move has drawn criticism from media groups including Freedom of Information Oklahoma saying this restricts a public’s right to know.

Comments can be e-mailed to Michael Evans or mailed to the Supreme Court at 2100 North Lincoln in Oklahoma City by November 4th.
