North Dakota Leads Way In Access To Case Information

I strongly believe that open access to information about bar disciplinary proceedings is necessary in order to determine whether self-regulation serves the public interest. The web page of the North Dakota Supreme Court provides a statement of issues and the briefs for a bar discipline case that is scheduled for oral argument today. I would love to see other state high courts adopt this approach, and thus enable the public to get a fuller sense of cases and issues than can be gleaned from review of court opinions. In the case, both sides have appealed from a recommended 60 day suspension. (Mike Frisch)
