Access to Court's Records

At some point in the future, it may be possible to look at criminal case information online in Delaware. A lot of decisions need to be made along the way before that happens. A Superior Court Judge recently ruled to provide some information to the Wilmington News Journal. The Judge ordered that information should be released, but also determined that certain types of information should not be provided to the newspaper. The News Journal has been trying to gain access to this type of information for a number of years, to try to analyse how effectively Delaware's criminal justice system has been operating.
