Proposed legislation requiring Connecticut’s criminal dockets to be posted on the Internet has received favorable action by the Judiciary Committee and is moving closer to a full vote by the General Assembly.

The law would require the state’s Judicial Branch to make the criminal docket of the Superior Court accessible to the public on its Web site. Information concerning active criminal cases shall be provided, “in language that is clear and understandable to a nonattorney,” Proposed Substitute Bill No. 5613 reads. Posted docket information shall include, at least, the next scheduled court date and the nature of the proceeding that will take place on that date. If enacted this session, the law would take effect Oct. 1.
