In his June 4 column, Sam Stretton called upon the Pennsylvania Supreme Court to "take a leading role" in determining how court records will be received/filed electronically and how the courts will protect the privacy of litigants. While lamenting the lack of guidance in Pennsylvania, Stretton highlighted a May 14 Commonwealth Court Historical Society program, "Harm Caused by Access to Court Records? An Attorney's Ethical Obligations." It is ironic that Stretton would use this program to complain about the lack of progress by Pennsylvania courts when, in fact, the opposite is true.
